Fruity aromas of peaches and ripe apples dominate the nose of this wine. On the palate it offers a balanced flavour, lively and enjoyable thanks to the pleasant acidity. Serve with starters, finger foods, antipastos, fish-based dishes, seafood and chicken.
90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot. Fresh, fragrant and fruity. The traditional Tuscan Sangiovese grape is completed in this wine with a small quantity of Merlot, giving it greater body and balance. Well-structured, soft and harmonious. Sweet tannins and lingering fruit flavor in the finish. Ideal with first courses served with meat or vegetable sauces, roast beef, white meat, and medium-mature cheese.
According to Antonio Galloni - there is little question the 2010 is one of the greatest - if not the single greatest - Solaia ever made.
Strohgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen. Intensiver Duft mit blumiger, fruchtiger Note. Trocken, aber doch mit einer gewissen Frische. Körper mit einer guten Struktur, ausgeglichen mit einer beträchtlichen Milde. Die Aussagekraft und Qualität verleiht diesem Wein eine Einzigartigkeit.
Already one of Italy’s most iconic bottlings, this gorgeous 2010 is already a classic. its complex and intense bouquet unfolds with ripe blackberries, violets, leather, thyme and balsamic herbs. The palate shows structure, poise and complexity, delivering rich black currants, black cherry, licorice, mint and menthol notes alongside assertive but polished tannins and vibrant energy. This wine will age and develop for decades.
The 2010 Solaia puts on an incredible show that hits all the senses and keeps your unyielding attention for as long as there is wine in the bottle. There are various ways to describe the bouquet. First, is the wine’s sweet side, as this beautiful 75-20-5 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc delivers ripe cherry, black currant, baking spice and dark chocolate. After that, the wine becomes redolent of tobacco, balsam, bay leaf, rum cake and dark licorice. The bouquet is all encompassing and complete. A firmly structured backbone is padded generously by the fleshy richness of its consistency. This is a gorgeous wine that will age for decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2040.
