A blend of 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Syrah, the 2010 Villa Antinori is is ruby red in color with intense aromas of cherries, mint, and, particularly, chocolate.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

Bright red fruit and a smooth finish. No oak in sight. Good food wine.

According to Antonio Galloni - there is little question the 2010 is one of the greatest - if not the single greatest - Solaia ever made.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
