Wine Maker Notes
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.
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.
