IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

D95

Decanter
While Dedicato a Walter, a 100% Cabernet Franc, is the top wine of the estate, and Seggio is becoming the bestseller of the winery, Sondraia has increased in quality (and price). In 2017 it has an earthy minerality with spice complexity of clove, bark and walnut husk, supporting vibrant, ripe fruit. The mid-palate is very extracted yet velvety, leading to a warming finish.
JS93
James Suckling
This shows depth and richness with chewy tannins and lots of fruit and flavor. Full-bodied and structured. A blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. Range: 92-93
V93
Vinous

The 2017 Sondraia is a rich, ample wine. Succulent black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice all build as this creamy, bold Bolgheri red shows off its considerable charms. A whole range of floral and savory top notes from the Cabernets adds aromatic presence as well as notable complexity. Drinking window: 2022 - 2032.

RP92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Marilisa Allegrini is the force behind one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking wineries along the Tuscan Coast. Poggio al Tesoro embraces alternative winemaking techniques such as amphorae and puts special effort into mapping in order to match the best grapes to terrain. Bolgheri is largely made of winemakers who come from other regions (Marilisa Allegrini is from Valpolicella), and these many "outsiders" have brought an exciting wave of innovation to these shores. The 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with a relatively contained 15% alcohol content. The wine opens to an inky dark appearance with dried blackberry and plum and plenty of spice and smoke to flesh it out. Like other Bolgheri wines from this vintage, the tannins (both the fruit and the oak tannins, but mostly the fruit) are very powerful and tight. They add a point of stemmy bitterness to the close that makes me enjoy this vintage less than some of the others I have tasted.
