The 2010 Solaia is less immediately giving on the nose than the Tignanello of the same vintage, taking time to reveal nuances of grilled herbs, black raspberry and currants beneath the cedar and spice. As it opens, it builds in intensity, reaching a crescendo on the long powerful finish. Plenty of dense fruit to back up mouth-filling tannins, which are remarkably sophisticated and a testament to the ongoing fine-tuning at this Antinori property.
98 Points - James Suckling
A triumph for Solaia. It suggests the greatness of the legendary 1997 Solaia. This is a wine with very subtle and complex aromas and flavours with currants, licorice and raspberries. Wonderful nose. Full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. I love this wine. The precision of the Cabernet Sauvignon comes through here.
