Critic Notes

Tasted at Vintex. A ripe but well defined nose with black cherries and strawberry coming through nicely with good lift and vigour. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, good acidity, the tannins lending an nice off-dry finish to counterpoise the lovely pure fresh fruit. Lovely. Tasted March 2010.

Score: 89-91/100Neal Martin

This relatively fat, fruit-laden, heady wine possesses low acidity and notes of ripe blackberries and cassis. An endearing, overtly modern styled red, it is meant to be drunk in its first 3-4 years of life. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Score: 87-/100Robert Parker

Solaia Vertical with Antonio Galloni, Piero Antinori and Renzo Cotarell
The evening started with Piero Antinori explaining how Solaia first came about, how it was effectively the result of a very lucky accident, much in the same way as Champagne. In 1978, the vines used to make Antinori’s Tignanello produced an unusually high yield of Cabernet Sauvignon. Rather than waste this, or blend it into the other wines, they decided ...
