Currently drinking well. Have enjoyed this wine in 1.5 liter on a few occasions over the past year. A classic wine from one of the better organic bio-d producers in Italy.

Dark in color, with intense aromas of blackberries and fresh herbs, such as basil, with a hint of eucalyptus. Full-bodied, with extremely well-polished tannins and a long, long finish. A tight and racy young wine that needs time to come into its own.... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 Antinori Solaia IGT 750ml

This wine is at a precocious age, with youthful cherry fruit flavors showing their first hint of violet and vanilla-tinged maturity, and tannins that smooth wonderfully after an hour of breathing. But pair it with Italian sausage and the fruit canrsquo;t restrain itself.

Ripe and fruity, with plenty of dried cherry character. Medium-bodied, with light tannins and a bright finish. Drink now.

Light in body, yet with the elegantly structure to last for years, this firm wine offers up woodland mushroom, rose and green pepper scents. Cellar a case, then break out a bottle for salume to check on its evolution.

Winemaker's Notes:

Schon das Bouquet bereitet Freude! Die Aromatik überzeugt mit Fülle und Vielschichtigkeit, erinnert an reife Brombeeren, Cassis und weist auf den perfekten Umgang mit dem Barrique hin. Im Gaumen offenbart sich eine stoffige, mächtige Textur, die dank des hohen Merlot-Anteils auch samtige, weiche Aspekte umfasst. Die Fruchtsäure ist perfekt eingebettet, und das Finale ist lange anhaltend. Dieser Bordeaux aus der noch wenig bekannten Weinanbauregion Fronsac von Bertrand Léon, dem Sohn des technischen Direktors von Château MOUTON-ROTHSCHILD, ist eine Entdeckung!
