This bottle comes from private collections, wine shops or rare wine dealers. The conditions have been verified by our experts but we cannot guarantee, after so many years, that the wine is still perfectly preserved. The sale of this bottle is therefore subject to the "as seen and liked" clause.
From the sunniest part of the Tignanello hill. From the best grapes of the best vineyard. The rest is passion, care, attention and research. Thus was born Solaia, produced with the most selected Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc grapes from the vineyard of the same name.
It is a vineyard of about 20 hectares facing south-west between 350 and 400 meters above sea level on a rocky limestone soil with alberese and galestro rock, located at Tenuta Tignanello. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time with the 1978 vintage; the initial blend was 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, which was repeated in 1979. In subsequent years a 20% of Sangiovese was introduced and some corrections were made in the relationship between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, up to the composition current. Solaia is only produced in exceptional vintages and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984 and 1992.
It has an intense and deep ruby red color. The nose is striking for the intense notes of ripe dark fruit, with sensations of blackberry and black currant that alternate with balsamic hints of fresh mint and myrtle; the bouquet is completed by refined spicy aromas of white pepper and toasted cinnamon and cocoa powder. On the palate it is rich and enveloping; the soft, velvety and vibrant tannins give length to the finish and persistence in the aftertaste, where the toasted notes perceived on the nose return.
Throughout the meal, it is enhanced with rich first courses also based on mushrooms. Excellent with roasts and braised meats.
