Organic product

Although its name designates a commune from the original Chianti area, this cuvee crafted by Carlo Ferrini, renowned consultant oenologist, is made with Cabernet Sauvignon. The mouth lacks no volume, with plenty of ampleness and a very tight tannic structure. Black fruits, licorice, cocoa, tobacco and wood define the fleshy palate that can withstand some six to eight years of cellaring.

See product page: Solaia 2015
Cabernet franc, Cabernet sauvignon, Sangiovese
Red wine
Italy, Tuscany
750 ml
SAQ code: 12274885

The wine delivers a sense of sheer excitement and nervousness that will subside with another few years of bottle age. Nonetheless, I think a certain amount of that bright edginess or rigidness will always be part of this cool vintage Solaia. In the mouth, the wine is firm, compact and dense. The tannins are chiseled to the point of sublime integration. Marchesi Antinori made 40% less Solaia in this vintage in order to maintain the quality you taste here. 2019-2035”
