Buy Poggio Al Tesoro Sondraia
* mixed case price $35.99/bottle
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.
Wine Spectator: A rich and supple texture up front paves the way for cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. As this finishes, the firm structure takes over, which will ensure a decade of development. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024. 5,000 cases made.

Sondraia is made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, grown in the Via Bolgherese and Le Sondraie vineyards. Le Sondraie, after which the wine is named, is Poggio al Tesoro's largest vineyard and is prized for its magnesium- and iron-rich soils. Via Bolgherese is more densely planted and at a slightly higher elevation with soils of gravel, coarse red sand, and clay. Together, the grapes from these vineyards transform a textbook Bordeaux recipe into a distinct, delicious expression of Bolgheria new classic.
