About

Solaia 2019 is a deep ruby red color. Impressive on the nose for its aromatic complexity and finesse: notes of small red fruit, especially raspberries and mulberries, lead over to sweet sensations of ripe apricots and red oranges together with light floral hints of roses.  Distinct aromas of coffee beans, chocolate and licorice are perfectly integrated and are accompanied by fresh impressions of mint and white pepper that give its generous bouquet a pleasant delicate spicy note.

The palate is enveloping, harmonious with an excellent and well-balanced structure. Plush, vibrant tannins contribute to its dense, captivating palate. The finish is exceptionally long and pleasurable with a persistent aftertaste that echoes toasted, and spicy notes perceived on the nose.

Raffaele Vecchione

Genial and polihedric in the primary profile offering notes of plums, lavender, wild violets, agapanthus flowers, citronella and marjoram. Decidedly Mediterranean hints enhance the secondary profile which is rich in oregano and ripe strawberries. Full bodied, perfectly polymerized tannins of splendid velvety form and a finale with notable progression which ignites from the centre palate onwards. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Franc. Better from 2024.

Wine Enthusiast

This wine has a deeply savory nose, with seaweed, soy sauce, olives, tobacco, black licorice and a rich medley of cherries, blackberries and plums. The fruity, spicy palate brings more berries, dark chocolate and chili peppers, emphasized by palpable heat and sticky but gentle tannins through a seemingly infinite finish. It's exceptionally drinkable now, but a few more years would guarantee a command performance.
