Poggio al Tesoro Sondraia 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Poggio al Tesoro|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia shows lots of tangy herbal character (the Cabernet elements really come through) with generous ripe cherry fruit and oak spice at the back to balance it out. Sondraia's first year as a Bolgheri Superiore is 2009. The finish is very soft and luscious and the tannins are integrated. The blend used here is Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc with a quarter part Merlot.
Wine SpectatorThis offers a mix of black currant, violet, thyme, wild rosemary and juniper flavors, backed by firm, mouthcoating tannins. The length of this youthful, raw red indicates its potential, accented by refined oak spice details. Best from 2017 through 2027. 600 cases imported.
