Alcohol/vol 15%
This is the winery's most important wine, produced with 100% Cabernet Franc, and dedicated by Marilisa and Franco to their late brother Walter. Its richness is evident at first sight, confirmed on the nose by perfectly interwoven, profound aromas of black-berried fruit, pepper and balsamic hints of eucalyptus. The palate astonishes for its ability to sustain this imposing structure with a light tautness, making it both powerful and agile. Particularly suited for juicy, well-seasoned meat such as quail, lamb, pigeon, duck, hare and braised meats with red wine sauces. Perfect to accompany premium, full-flavoured cheeses.

The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Dedicato A Walter is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc, offering mineral essences of sea shell, clay and round rocks. This wine is supremely elegant, with dark fruit, spice and a touch of Mediterranean herb. The tannins are integrated and gorgeous. This vintage was aged in 100% new oak. The winemaking team has shortened the time in wood to 24 months and increased the time in bottle to ten months. (They are aiming for 12 months in bottle with the upcoming vintages.) Still, the wine will benefit from even more time in the cellar to express itself fully. Bravi.

The 2015 Dedicato a Walter shows why Cabernet Franc is such an exciting variety on the Tuscan Coast. Rich and explosive in the glass, the 2015 soars with inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, mocha and wild flowers. The purity of the flavors is just striking. This is another super-classic wine from Poggio al Tesoro that captures the essence of what Bolgheri is all about.

Sweet ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit is matched to toasty oak and accents of licorice, tobacco and iron in this rich red. Fluid, with light tannins keeping this honest on the finish. Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 50 cases imported.
