Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red in color, Sondraia offers layered aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry, mocha, graphite, and a hint of sweet spice. On the palate, it is full-bodied and supple, with refined, soft tannins and a silky texture.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A 65-25-10 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia is a delicious wine that shows both varietal and territory-driven characteristics. You do get greenish notes of rosemary and dried oregano, but Sondraia also offers an assortment of spice, cola and licorice-like aromas. It builds in intensity over the palate, offering a long, luscious finish.
WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Taking a page out of the book of Bordeaux, specifically from the Médoc region, the area of Bolgheri is fast surpassing of that fame French region. The well-defined and finely-built 2011 Poggio al Tesoro Sondraia shows rich and sophisticated flavors and is ready for a well-marbled rib-eye of beef just off of the grill. Very dark in color; bold, ripe currant aromas, with an accent of savory spices, excellent depth; medium bodied and firm on the palate, sweet tannins; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; tangy, red fruit flavors, tight-knit and well-conceived; long finish, excellent tension in the aftertaste. (Tasted: March 30, 2016, San Francisco, CA USA)
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this opens with savory aromas of fennel, dark berry, bell pepper and cedar. The firm palate offers black currant, black cherry, clove and Mediterranean herbs. Assertive but fine-grained tannins add elegance.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe blueberry, black currant and coffee notes signal this dense, structured red, which is lean and astringent in the end, with a bell pepper hint on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2023. 600 cases imported.

Poggio al Tesoro Winery Video
One of the Allegrini Group properties, Poggio al Tesoro is located in the prestigious area of Bolgheri, a premiere appellation situated in the upper part of Tuscany’s Maremma, south of Pisa and just two miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The estate consists of 173 acres divided into three vineyard lots: via Bolgherese, Le Grottine, and Le Sondraie. The perfect quantity of sunlight throughout the year, the proximity to the sea, and the uniqueness of Bolgheri’s terroir are reflected in the style of Poggio al Tesoro’s wines; ripeness, muscular body, and richness are effortlessly combined with complexity and elegance.

The best clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot have been planted at Poggio al Tesoro for the precise purpose of crafting top-class wines with bold international style. Vermentino and Syrah, which produce wines of unmistakable personality in this area, complete the selection of varieties planted at Poggio al Tesoro.

Classic and quality-oriented grape-growing and winemaking methods are also employed at harvest and in the cellar: the grapes are hand-selected and harvested in multiple passes, then go through an additional selection process at the winery. Red varieties are fermented separately and then blended together for superior balance and a unique flavor profile. The climate and the terroir at Poggio al Tesoro allow for ideal concentration and perfect balance between structure, aromas and tannins, resulting in lush wines of outstanding class and finesse.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
