Plantings on the Estate began in 2003 and the choice of varietals and rootstocks was strongly influenced by the soil and environmental conditions of the various vineyard sites at Poggio al Tesoro.

The sandier, stonier soils were planted with more powerful grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Soils rich in clay and minerals, on the other hand, are better suited to varietals such as Merlot which produces wines that are elegant, harmonious and full-flavoured. In the Via Bolgherese vineyard, a light tilling of the soil keeps the ground cool and aerated, while at Le Sondraie, grass is grown between each row of vines (throughout winter and spring) to inhibit vigour and maintain the best possible temperature/humidity ratio.
