Antinori - Tenuta Tignanello : Solaia 2008

SKU:J1018/08 Tuscany - Toscana - Red - 14° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 93

The 2008 Solaia is of an intense colour. The nose is quite complex, wide, loaded with aromas such as black cherries and ripe red fruit then ending on liquorice, coffee and toasted oak. On the palate the tannins are well-balanced. The wine is very savoury and mineral with a softness which aftertaste reminds of sweet notes of cacoa, vanilla, black and red berry fruits.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Solaia is richer and darker than the Tignanello, but it isn't an appreciably more complex or complete wine. It shows gorgeous depth and textural richness to match an expressive core of blackberry jam, smoke, scorched earth, crushed rocks and cassis. This is a beautiful wine, but not as great as I had hoped. The 2008 Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in 100% new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
