SOLAIA Super Premium TOSCANA IGT

SOLAIA Super Premium TOSCANA IGT

JD 330.00

Solaia is a 50 acre (20 hectare) vineyard with a southwestern exposure located at an altitude between 1150 and 1325 feet (350-400 meters) above sea level and with a stony soil of “alberese” (hard limestone) and “galestro” (flaky calcareous clay) rock. The vineyard is located at the Tignanello estate. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time in the year 1978, and the initial blend was 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Cabernet Franc, a formula repeated in 1979 as well. In the following years, 20% of Sangiovese was introduced and certain adjustments were also made in the rapport between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc until the current blend was settled upon. Solaia is produced only in exceptional vintage, and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984, and 1992.

Solaia 2018 is an intense ruby red color. Its nose offers intense notes of dark, ripe fruit in particular blueberries and black currants that merge seamlessly with pleasant sensations of dried flowers and lavender, accompanied by delicate spicy notes of white pepper and balsamic notes of mint and eucalyptus. Sweet, well-integrated aromas of white chocolate, cotton candy and dried fruit complete its rich bouquet. On the palate, Solaia 2018 is mouth filling and creamy: soft, silky tannins impart an extremely elegant, lengthy and lingering finish, with a pleasing aftertaste reminiscent of licorice. Floral and spicy notes originally perceived on the nose accent the finish.
