ABOUT THE WINE
Solaia is a 50-acre vineyard located at the Tignanello estate. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time in the year 1978. The family itself has been involved in the production of wine in Tuscany since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Arte Florentina, the Winemakers Guild of Florence. Today the winery is run by Marquis Piero Antinori, with the support of his three daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia.
A deep ruby red in colour, the wine was also endowed with expressive varietal aromas and sweet notes of red berry fruit and spices. The long, cool growing season was perceptible in the full ripeness of flavour, the ample and supple structure, and the elegance and admirable balance. The sustained finish and aftertaste echoed the fragrance first felt on the nose.
Red meat, goose or veal; complex stews and aged hard cheese.
A classic, with marvellous finesse and refinement, from a good vintage.
