Marchesi Antinori Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009 (1500ml)

$475

The 2009 Solaia is one of the clear standouts of the vintage. Freshly cut flowers, raspberries, spices, mint and licorice burst from the glass as this fabulous, viscerally thrilling wine shows off its pure class. Today the oak is a bit prominent, but that won't be an issue by the time the wine is ready to drink. In one of my blind tastings, the 2009 Solaia was flat-out great. There is no shortage of pedigree here. The 2009 has calmed down a little from its youth, when it was a much more exuberant wine, and has now begun to close down in bottle. Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc from a single parcel within the Antinori family's Tignanello vineyard... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This Super Toscana icon is shinning in the 2009 vintage. Magnum bottle, so I assume it matured a bit slower than average. Lovely dark red color, complex expressive nose with layers of black current, plums, coffee, red ripe cherries, spices, vanilla, licorice and sweet spices, full rich body with lovely well integrated tannins balanced by fine acidity, long chewy finish. A true pleasure, enjoyable today, and probably better in 2018. My score 92, drink to 2027

Incredibly rich and well structured. Elegance of France with rusticity of Italy. Needs about 5-9 years until it will really make it to the opera though! #solaia #antinori #tuscany #italy
