Solaia Rosso Antinori Toscana-Supertuscans 2008
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Strawberry and cherry aromas. Flavors carry more strawberries, some cranberry. Good.
red berries, some spice and smoke, nice body
Would buy at a price
As heard on <a href="http://www.wypr.org/Cellar_Notes.html">Cellar Notes</a>.
Nice berry aroma with some other subtle notes of spice and even something vegetal. Medium body, smooth texture and flavor of tart cherries all the way to the finish. Very nice for $12.
A perfectly average Tuscan wine. A good table wine. I couldn't find any fault with it and enjoyed it but it did not exhibit significantly more character than a straw basket chianti. It's a good buy for the price.
2008 Tablas Creek Rosé (58% Mourvèdre, 32% Grenache, 10% Counoise). Reddish pink color darker than most Rosés; Well balanced, Plum, watermelon, strawberry on nose and palate; fresh, crisp lingering flavors on the finish. Really enjoying this wine, especially on hot day like today. July 19, 2009
External Reviews for Solaia Rosso Antinori Toscana-Supertuscans
A soft red, boasting black cherry, blackberry and spice notes. Tails off a little on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
The wine has an intense ruby red color. It offers full and complex aromas which recall ripe fruit, plum jam, mint, chocolate, and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine presents itself with good body; it is round, with soft, velvety tannins.90 WA
There are plenty of raspberry aromas and flavors in this medium-bodied Italian red, along with a soft texture and a light, fruity finish. Focused and clean, it gives you the chance to dig into the wonderful quality of the lsquo;97 vintage right away, and for an affordable price. Drink now.
A berry scented Sangiovese with hints of leather (itrsquo;s a good thing) and spice from under the Tuscan sun.
An easy-drinking red, with cherry, citrus and fresh herb character. Medium body. Clean, tight finish. This never lets you down for the buck. Drink now.
A clean and fruity red, with ripe blackberry and citrus character. Lots of fresh fruit on the palate. A good Santa Cristina this year.
