Dedicato a Walter - in Andenken an Walter. Diesen reinsortigen Cabernet Franc von eigenen Weinbergen an der Via Bolgherese widmeten Marilisa und Franco Allegrini ihrem ältesten und 2003 verstorben Bruder.
"Tiefdunkles, funkelndes Rubinviolett. Eröffnet in der Nase mit Noten nach Tabak und Oregano, dann viel dunkelbeerige Frucht, satt und einladend. Am Gaumen stoffiges Tannin, salzig-mineralische Komponenten geben Spiel, viel Cassis und Brombeere, sehr langer Nachhall." Falstaff
"A wine with herb, berry and currant character that follow through to a full body, milk chocolate and berry character and a medium finish. Made from cabernet franc. Better in 2015 when the tannins soften." James Suckling
"The 2010 Dedicato a Walter is one of the very finest versions of this 100% Cabernet Franc I have ever tasted. Deep, powerful and packed to the core with fruit, the 2010 boasts stunning richness and pedigree. Mocha, espresso, blackberry jam, graphite and smoke all round out this magnificent effort from Poggio al Tesoro. An exceptionally well-balanced, harmonious wine, the 2010 should drink well for another decade, perhaps longer." Antonio Galloni
"Always a delight to drink, the 2010 Cabernet Franc Dedicato a Walter represents the top wine from Poggio al Tesoro. It is made in memory of Marilisa Allegrini’s late Walter bother who first fell in love with Bolgheri. As you would expect from this the variety, the wine opens with inky dark concentration and bold aromas of dark fruit, prune, blackberry and sweet cherry. It feels massive and rich, but despite its obvious power and heft, the wine carries its weight with grace. The 2010 vintage is particularly muscular, firm and toned." Robert Parker
