Typical "Italian style" Sangiovese. Smoked lunch meat on the nose. Its difficlt to pick up the cherry through the oak and suede but its there. Faint cherry and bitter dark chocolate finish.

With a grenache syrah blend this wine is amazingly smooth and feels like you are drinking a much more expensive bottle than it actually is. Normally less than 5 GBP.

The 2000 Solaia, not unexpectedly, is the best wine of the series with expansive aromas of black currants, thyme, and sage, much eucalyptus and chocolate on the palate along with ripe, sweet fruit, and a sizeable finish. Drink 2005-2018.


External Review

The black/purple color is followed by a sumptious bouquet of licorice, blackberries, mint and cassis, all presented in a concentrated, medium to full-bodied, dense, yet elegant style. Although still young, it is undoubtedly the qualitative equivalent of a Bordeaux first or second growth. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016.

Masses of coffee and blackberry character in this youthful wine. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, loads of fruit and excellent wood. Big and juicy, with a long, long finish. A fine wine. Needs time. Best after 2007.

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. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2005.


External Review

Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese (with a small touch of Cabernet Franc), Solaia's winning card is texture. The wine is soft, velvety and penetrating in the mouth with succulent flavors of blackberry, creamy cassis berry, chocolate and tobacco. Thick extraction and quality fruit craft a memorable wine that will last many long and happy years in your cellar.

A Gewurztraminer wine from Alsace in France. 2001 Domaine Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain Vendange Tardive 750ml

Always a voluptuous and rounded red. Gorgeous blackberry, black currant and lead pencil aromas. Full-bodied, with well integrated, soft tannins. Long, fruity aftertaste. Best after 2000.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, dark sensations of smoke, tar and scorched earth emerge from the powerful 2001 Solaia. This fresh, vibrant offering is packed with dense ripe fruit. This is an especially rich, heavy style of Solaia that lacks the subtlety and grace of the finest vintages. Still, in 2001 Solaia is a more complete wine than Tignanello. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
