Poggio Al Tesoro Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia
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 in colour, the nose opens with nuances of cherry and plum and deep notes of black berries, followed by aromatic herbs and a pleasant spiciness. It is elegant and seductive on the palate, revealing considerable body, great structure and balance, and silky tannins.
Grilled and barbequed meats – Chianina beef in particular – roasted veal, spare ribs, ossobuco, and lamb or pork shanks. Excellent with smoked ricotta cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano and medium-matured pecorino. Serve at 16-18°C and open one hour before drinking.
