The name of this wine is a tribute to Walter Allegrini who started the project of Poggio al Tesoro with his sister, Marilisa, in 2001. Walter unfortunately passed away in 2003, so this wine is dedicated to him and symbolizes the love he felt for this land. Bolgheri's terroir, with its proximity to the sea and the particularly favorable exposure to the sun, allows Cabernet Franc to thrive.
Intense ruby-red in color, with complex aromas of ripe red fruit, balsamic spices and an elegant toasted note. On the palate, it is exotic, spicy, full-bodied and harmonious, with ripe and well-developed tannins and a persistent finish.
Particularly well-suited for pairing with well-seasoned steak cooked to medium-rare perfection, or braised meats such as lamb, pigeon, duck, and hare with red wine sauces.
