Poggio al Tesoro Dedicato a Walter 2016


In Stock

“Poggio al Tesoro’s 2016 Dedicato a Walter, 100% Cabernet Franc, exudes richness and power in all of its dimensions. Blackberry jam, chocolate, lavender, licorice and menthol all flesh out in an ample, potent wine that shows all the potential of Franc in Tuscany’s Maremma. I would give the 2016 another year or so in bottle, as the tannins are a bit imposing at this stage. Drinking window: 2022-2031. 95+ points

This is another strong set of wines from Poggio al Tesoro, an estate that has really turned a corner in the last few years. Sondraia and the pure Cabernet Franc Dedicato a Walter are the flagship wines, but I find the entry-level offerings every bit as compelling.”
