Solaia Double Marchesi Antinori 2007
Intensives Rubinrot mit Granatreflexen, ausgeprägte typische Duftnoten nach dunkler Frucht, vielschichtig, fein und elegant, am Gaumen dicht und intensiv, komplexe Struktur, lang anhaltend, im Nachgeschmack Noten von Schokolade, Kaffee und Zitrus-Konfitüre, optimaler Tanningehalt, der sich sehr gut mit dem des Holzes verbindet.

The nose was like a big basket of ripe berries with crème fraiche, tobacco box and spice. However, on the palate, it fell short of expectations with black currant and bell pepper on a light-to-medium frame with a fresh, yet long, finish. At a quarter of the price, I may have scored low nineties.
Tangy, citrusy body, with a touch of anise and a nice soft finish. Dark black/purple color. Would go well with tomato dishes since it would match the fruitiness and acidity.
Definitely needs food, but not bad after dinner by itself. Pretty decent, and good for the price. Went very well with spaghetti and a red meat sauce. Smooth and dry. Decent, and not bad, aside from that, not a lot to distinguish it.
A very good value. Slightly fruity with soft tannins.
Ruby red color with purple hues. Intense fresh fruit aromas with pleasant floral hints. Well-structured, generous, soft and harmonious. Sweet tannin and lingering fruit in the finish.
It takes me back to Italia... a good wine and a great value.
A favorite of mine and a very great tasting, a bit refreshing actually, when chilled just so.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
You canrsquo;t help but love this wine. The richness, density and intensity are all outstanding and Tignanello is extraordinary in terms of aromas and flavors. The traditional formula for this groundbreaking super Tuscan was Sangiovese with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage sees 5% Cabernet Franc for additional texture and longevity.
There are 30,000 cases of this well-known Tuscan proprietary red made from a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 1998 offers a classic bouquet of berry fruit, new saddle leather, underbrush, earth, and toast from its new barrique aging. Medium to full-bodied, with more tannin than the plusher, more opulent 1997, good delineation, and a firm, classic style, it requires 2ndash;3 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 15ndash;16.
Ah, Tignanello, the father of all super Tuscans. A tried and true favorite, it is a Sangiovese-based wine cut with a small component of Cabernet for rich aromas of red fruit and spice. It is elegant, harmonious and long-lasting on the finish; drink after 2012.
Tignanello hit spot-on in '98, the ripeness of its Sangiovese made supple, concentrated and plush with ripe Cabernet, while it holds to the brightness of the Tuscan grape. The power of the Cabernet shows up in the first scents of cocoa and dark berries, in the completely mouth-filling flavor, while the Sangiovese keeps it mouthwatering. There's super extract without excess weight, a sweet kiss of tannic intensity to end the wine in herbal, earthy black. Probably around ten years from the vintage, this needs the time to fully express its depth of flavor.
Antinori is a world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries. The Villa Antinori is the estate where the Chianti Classico wines have been produced for many years. This wine is a natural progression from their Chianti Classico. As the Antinoris recognized how non-native grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah raised the level of quality of their wine they started blending more and more and finally could no longer use the DOC designation and so it became a Super Tuscan IGT. But the quality they’ve reached is exceptional, especially as they’ve experimented more with aging in small oak barrels. This wine from the outstanding 2007 vintage is a blend of 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah aged for 12 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Aged in the bottle for another 8 months before release this Tuscan beauty has reached a stage where the ripe fruit, the savory oak and the Tuscan terroir are intermingled in a stunning array.
