Marchesi Antinori Solaia Super Tuscan Blend 2011

Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness... At times, the 2011 could be easily mistaken for a wine from Napa Valley, such is its intensity. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This is a lovely iconic super Tuscany blend of CS and CF, it seems that in this year Sangiovese was not past of the blend. The color is deep purple, the nose is young and fruity, full of black cherries, green herbs, mint, red current and a hint of spice, full body, with high acidity,dry green tannins, and a long delicious finish, still a baby and needs time to further develop, my score 89, drink to 2025 , perhaps longer, score might improve with time
