Marchesi Antinori Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

$215

This stunning expression of Solaia opens with ample aromas of exotic spices, tilled soil, mature black-skinned fruit and an underlying whiff of fragrant blue flowers. The vibrant, elegantly structured palate doles out high-toned black cherry, ripe blackberry, white pepper, cinnamon, clove and Mediterranean herbs alongside a backbone of firm, polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink till 2032. Wine Enthusiast

Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

A blend of 75% Cab Sauv, 20% Sangiovese & 5% Cab Franc, dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, spice and flinty notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum with cacao and herbs with slight minty edge. Soft tannins, well balanced with acidity on long finish ending with fruit, cedar and earthy tobacco. Very nice! Drinking well but will improve over next decade.

Such a high quality wine, everything about it. Violets, green herbs, raspberry, strawberry, gum leaf and smoked capsicum with oak set well in the background. In the palate though is where the wine stands alone. The mouth is sprawled with a wide web of tannin that feels of the upmost quality, high toned acid flowing through that sees a eternal finish. Time in the cellar will do this well.

Consistently wonderful. Fragrant and inviting from the pour. Decanted and improved in second hour but strong violets fruit and lengthy finish.
