Solaia, grand vin du domaine Antinori, est une parcelle située sur le côté le plus ensoleillé de la colline de Tignanello. Cet assemblage à dominante de cabernet sauvignon évoque les grands crus du bordelais; il est toutefois plus exotique et il se rapproche davantage des grands vins californiens. Solaia est élevé 12 mois en barriques, puis affiné 12 mois en bouteille.

Notes de dégustation


The 2012 Solaia is the ultimate comfort wine: It serves as a beautiful monument to the potential of Italian wine. Let me give you some context. My lukewarm review of the 2011 vintage caused some heads to turn. Happily, the previous vintage has served as a springboard for this current release. Both 2011 and 2012 come from hot climatic conditions, but these wines are very different in style and content. The 2011 heat softened the lines that make up the varietal identity of this celebrated Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Those lines are presented in sharp focus with the 2012 edition. The nose is redolent of dark berry, crushed mineral, plum, spice and touch of white pepper. The wine is integrated and seamless, but it speaks with a strong and articulate voice.


Another intense, tightly-wound wine, the 2012 Solaia is likely to require a number of years in bottle before it is ready to drink. Graphite, smoke, plums, black cherries, rose petal and mint meld together effortlessly in the glass. Here, too, the style is


Extremely perfumed with violet, currant and berry character. Hints of sandalwood. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a vivid and fresh finish. Mineral and stone undertones. Really excellent. Drink or hold.
