Nice sweet wine from red grapes fortified with brandy, good dark red colour and aroma of red fruits. Amazing with dark cocholate.

P ojer & Sandri is an artisan domaine which was founded in 1975 when young Fiorentino Sandri inherited a small vineyard in the rugged alpine hills above Trento. Here is the village of Faedo, Sandri formed a partnership with winemaker Mario Pojer (who had just finished his studies in enology at the famous nearby wineschool, the San Michele Agricultural Institute). T his partnership continues to bear fruit (literally and figuratively !). Their goal was simple and to some of the locals, foolhardy: They were going to cultivate vineyards in the hills of Faedo, between the Adige river and the Cembra Valley. T he first wine to be offered for sale met with tremendous acclaim, a 1975 vintage Müller-Thurgau of exceptional fragrance and finesse. The nay-sayers were even more surprised upon the release of Pojer & Sandri's first Chardonnay, along with a wine made from an indigenous variety called Nosiola. Never ones to rest on their laurels, Pojer & Sandri continued to innovate and experiment. The variety of offerings made by Pojer & Sandri continues to grow. Bottled-fermented, hand-crafted Spumante has been produced for many years. A late-harvested dessert wine called Essenzia (the blend or mix varies from vintage to vintage) is made when Mother Nature allows. Not forgetting the world of red wines, we make French oak-aged Pinot Nero (Noir) and a Bordeaux-styled blend called Rosso Faye. These are much sought-after by connoisseurs around the world. Read less
