4 /5

The Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia of Poggio al Tesoro was founded in vineyards that stretch along the Bolgheri Road and Via The Sondraie, in the heart of the renowned Bolgheri DOC. It is produced primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes, harvested exclusively by hand in the second half of September. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28-30ºC for a period of 12 days. After malolactic fermentation in barrels at a temperature of 22ºC, the wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels of Allier, in part new. Ruby red in color, the nose opens with a complex bouquet of herbs, enriched decided fruity notes of blackberry, cherry and plum. On the palate it recognizes a fresh balsamic track that gives a cool drink, smooth and silky. Perfect paired with grilled meats, including Chianina and cooking and spit roasts, this red Bolgheri Ideal with mature cheeses and smoked ricotta.
