(From 2003 Vintage) Solaia is a wine of massive proportion, dominated by rich black fruits, currants, minerals and a slight earthiness. Powerful yet fine grained tannins provide the framework for black fruit flavors and slight oaky hints. The palate is soft, well-balanced and lingering. This wine can be drunk immediately but has excellent ageing potential.
Wine Spectator(From 2001 Vintage) "Masses of coffee and blackberry character in this youthful wine. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, loads of fruit and excellent wood. Big and juicy, with a long, long finish. A fine wine. Needs time. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made" (JS)
