Intense ruby red, this wine has 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. Naturally suited to accompany chargrilled meats, particularly T-bone and fillet steak, it also goes well with kebabs, roasted veal, ribs, 'ossobuco', lamb shanks and pork. It is further enhanced when paired with smoked ricotta cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano and medium-matured goat's milk cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in new and neutral oak for 18 months. The results are dark and luscious with generous blackberry fruit at the top. As you dig deeper, this wine begins to show nuances of exotic spice and grilled herb with dark mineral and tar at the back. The results are well proportioned and balanced.

Wine SpectatorPungent aromas of black currant, plum, rosemary, sage and spice highlight this powerful red. Rich and dense at once, this lingers with sweet fruit and tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2025. 1,880 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of black currant and a whiff of bell pepper slowly emerge on this hearty blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Concentrated and robust, the palate offers cassis, black cherry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol alongside big velvety tannins.
