Sondraia serves as 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.
Subtle hints of exotic spices and ripe red fruit on the nose.
On the palate it is plush, warm and full, with persistent silky and ripe tannins in the finish.
