Tasting Notes

JS97

Extremely impressive ripe dark fruits of blueberries, plums and blackberries follow through to a full body, round texture and bright acidity. The finesse and depth to this red is stunning making it a wonderful successor to the 2011 Solaia.

WE97

This stunning expression of Solaia opens with ample aromas of exotic spices, tilled soil, mature black-skinned fruit and an underlying whiff of fragrant blue flowers. The vibrant, elegantly structured palate doles out high-toned black cherry, ripe blackberry, white pepper, cinnamon, clove and Mediterranean herbs alongside a backbone of firm, polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2017–2032. Cellar Selection.

The Winery

Solaia

For 26 generations, the Antinori family has been producing exquisite juice beginning in 1385 when Giovani di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Guild of Vintners. The family name did not become globally known until Piero Antinori began a new winemaking style in the 1970s, when he decided to ignore traditional classification and highlight the versatility of Sangiovese. This rouge approach inspired him to replace the white grapes in the customary Chianti blend with Bordeaux varietals. It not only changed the flavor profile, but increased the longevity of the wines. His first effort was Tignanello and comprised of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Its successors are Solaia and Guada al Tasso. Today the Super Tuscan movement is known for producing some of the highest quality wines in the world. Vintages to look out for: 1971, 1978, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007.
