SKU 44757


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. Food pairings: 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 AdvocateA 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.

Wine EnthusiastMade 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.

Wine SpectatorRipe 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.
