Food Pairings for Antinori Solaia Cabernet Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon-Sangiov Toscana
Aromas filled with varying dark berries, complex and concentrated flavors. This was my last Murray's Cheese pairing of the night and my favorite of the 5 that evening. The cheese was a Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, a hard cheddar with grassy and nutty notes. The cheese offered more complexity to the wine and brought out a little spice on the finish.
Excellent with mediterranean food. Strawberry finish. Mad sediment at the bottom of the bottle.
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Counoise. Apples, cherry, and strawberry aromas and palate. Candy apple notes emerge, as well as sweet apple-spice aromas. Lovely streak of limestone adds complexity.
Soft red wine, not too dry or too tannic. Good for a non-red wine drinker. I would buy and enjoy again.
Very nice wine with plenty of berry on the nose. with a smooth finish. Tastes of berry and vanilla as it goes down. Nice medium bodied wine. Great for pasta or something like herb chicken or pork loin. Paired nicely with the stuffed pasta shells for dinner. If you can get it for under 15.00 its a nice buy.
Nice garnet color. Herbal notes and a little earthiness on the nose. Some tart cherry (just a hint) and raspberry overtones on the palate. Tannins have some grip but do not steal the show. I also pick up herbal notes on the finish, sage and rosemary. Not a long finish but hangs on just long enough for you to appreciate it. Overall well balanced. I've had some good Antinori wines and some great Antinori wines, but I've never tasted a bad Antinori wine. This one is good.
External Reviews for Antinori Solaia Cabernet Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon-Sangiov Toscana
Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
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.
Wine Tasting NotesRuby red color with purple hues. Red berry fruit on the nose with floral hints of violets and a spicy note from the oak barrels. Harmonious, tangy, slightly tannic and velvety on the palate, with floral hints and fresh red berry fruit on the finish.
This blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is a brilliant ruby red color, with intense fresh fruit aromas and pleasant floral notes. The finish sweet tannins and pleasant, lingering fruit.

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.
<p>Made by one of the biggest wine companies in Italy that had its origins in 1385, this wine stands up to its name as “Super-Tuscan”. It’s an intense ruby red with aromas of red berries and oak. A very well-balanced flavor with cassis, cherry, and a hint of chocolate, which combine for a silky, rich finish.</p>
