We ended the meal with this unique dessert wine. Fun of prune, chocolate, leather and sweet treacle notes lifted by the significant VA this was rich and penetrating to smell. So smooth and rich in the mouth with great depth of fruit and a refreshing touch of tannin that kept this from being cloying. I didn't notice the acid but obviously there's plenty here. The finish has earth and fading middle eastern spice note with a finale that recalls black currant jam spread on a dark chocolate dipped burnt marshmallow! A little goes a long way. Drink it for the rest of your life. 95pts


User Reviews for Ferrari Solaria Jonica

Winemaker's Notes:

A unique elixer! Recorded as the hottest year of the century in Puglia, the Solaria Jonica was vinified in the Piemontese winery by Antonio Ferrari, who purchased these grapes from selected Primitivo vineyards. Well aware of the advanced state of maturity and natural air dried state of the bunches, he initially anticipated a wine of 21%! Probably due to a temperature change in the cool hills of Novara, fermentation stopped at 14%. This naturally sweet wine was aged for 10 years in a wooden cask, before spending the remaining 35 years in a Cement cask in the Ferrari winery!
