    Tasting Notes and Technical Details

    Sondraia has quickly become a classic in the Bolgheri area. Perfectly ripe grapes and painstaking work in the cellar yield a wine with intense fresh dark fruit notes complemented by smoky tobacco, herbs and sweet spices. These characteristics follow on to the palate which is silky smooth and profoundly elegant.

        Vineyards

        Most of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit for this blend was sourced from the three hectare Via Bolgherese vineyard situated at 56 metres above sea level. Composed of coarse red sand, the soils are rich in gravel, well drained and have a clay layer at a depth of 120 centimetres. The planting density is 9,000 vines per hectare. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and the remaining Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the 12 hectare Le Sondraie vineyard situated 35 metres above sea level. These soils are free draining, a mixture of clay and sandy silt, with high levels of magnesium and iron. With a density of 7,936 vines per hectare, the vines are cordon trained and spur pruned. The vines have an average age of 19 years.
