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.
|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.
