Tasting notes
Youthful, dense ruby red. Intense, multi-layered nose. Cassis, coffee, dark chocolate, ripe cherries, liquorice and elegant wood. Powerful on the palate with a beautifully balanced, juicy structure. Full of finesse and precision. Powerful tannins of exceptional quality. The aromas of the nose are reflected in the flavours. Long-lasting, aromatic finish. The Solaia shows the unmistakeable character of the grape varieties, but also has its own, strong Tuscan identity.

Recommendations
Tip: Forget your reverence for a moment and simply serve this wine with a fine piece of grilled meat and some beans.
Vinification
The distinct grape varieties are harvested separately at the optimum ripeness. After destemming and gentle pressing, the maceration takes place in 60hl wooden vats. The young wine, still separated by variety, then matures in barriques of French oak for approx. 18 months. After this, the wines are blended and rest a little longer before being bottled. Only around 35,000 bottles are produced each year!
