Marchesi Antinori Solaia Toscana IGT 2015
14.5% - Italy
Wine Advocate 100/100 James Suckling 100/100
The 2015 Solaia shows an intense ruby red colour with purple highlights. The complexity and expressiveness of the aromas are high level indeed: the nose offers powerful notes of plum jam and such ripe black fruit as blackberries, blueberries, and cassis. The perfectly integrated sensations of chocolate and liquorice give way on the finish to hints of mint which confer great freshness to the bouquet. The wine is harmonious on the palate with an excellent and balanced structure; the suppleness and silkiness of the tannins give it solidity, elegance, and an extremely long finish and a very long and lingering aftertaste. Drink 2020-2050.
