Antinori Solaia Toscana 2001
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.

One of the great wines in the world for under $100 without question. Give the opportunity to order either the Solaia or the Guado al Tasso, although both typically bordering greatness, I'd take the Guado. The profound concentration alone isn't usually seen in wine this inexpensive relative to the world market....to boot, the aromatic profile is in 3-d, seeming to forever stain your memory and palate if you get a glass!
This wine looks like the real deal, a deep penetrating ruby red. The bouquet stands out immediately with cherries, blackberries, chocolate and minerals. The palate is silky smooth and soft with the correct balance of tannins. There is nothing aggressive here but yet the experience is an attack. All the senses are brought to life with this spectacular effort. Ready for drinking from 2007. (SN - 11/07)
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.
A very great wine, great flavor & long tannin... it will be special if storage 6 months more... but not more than that.
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.
External Reviews for Antinori Solaia Toscana
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.
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.
This solid Solaia has a god dark ruby color, with berry, tobacco and a hint of mint to its character. It's medium-bodied, boasts a solid core of fruit and polished tannins. Long finish. Meeds bottle age; best after 2000.
Good deep purple-tinged ruby. Deeper, fresher aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant and minerals than the riper '07 shows. Still primary and brooding on the palate, with a refined, lively texture and a floral character that carries through to the aftertaste. The red and black fruit flavors are complicated by hints of forest floor and by more apparent minerality than the '07. Quite silky in texture thanks to noble tannins. Finishes long and pure thanks to firm but well-integrated acidity. This is less soft and more austere than the excellent '07, but each will have its admirers. This 2006 will also prove longer-lived.
The estate's 2006 Solaia is a big, powerful offering loaded with ripe blackberry jam, herbs, minerals and French oak. Like all of the 2006s from Antinori, the Solaia remains extraordinarily dense and primary. Readers will have to be patient with this wine and give it plenty of bottle age before the full range of its aromas and nuances blossom fully. Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

Perhaps the greatest Solaia yet made, it rivals the outstanding 1985 the sensational, opaque blue/purple-colored 1997 exhibits a complex nose of cedar, cigar box, cassis, and subtle oak and reveals extraordinary concentration, a thick, viscous texture, yet no sense of heaviness or ponderousness. It is a thrilling Solaia to consume of the next two decades. If a first-growth Pauillac were made in Tuscany, this would be it!
