Sondraia serves a concrete example of how a textbook Bordeaux blend can be expertly crafted from Bolgheri's terroir, creating an original and easily recognizable masterpiece. Intense ruby-red in color and concentrated, Sondraia offers exotic, spicy aromas of ripe cherry and blackberry combined with notes of chocolate and mocha that linger softly on the palate. Sondraia is full-bodied and supple, yet refined, with soft tannins framing a silky texture. Strongly recommended with barbecued or roasted meats, filet mignon, steak tartare, and pasta or rich risottos.
One of the Bordeaux blends by which I judge all others. Utter perfection.
