Vie Cave Maremma Toscana IGT Antinori Fattoria Aldobrandes 2006
- Show All (84)
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.
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.
Not sure if it wants to be a rose or a light red. Looks like cranberry juice. The wine hits the front of the tongue like luscious silk but then the ridiculously high alcohol spreads out from there coating the sides and back of the tongue as well as the rest of the mouth with heat. It's got some interesting flavors including peach and lilac -- not words I have ever used together -- but for the price I wish it was less harsh.
External Reviews for Vie Cave Maremma Toscana IGT Antinori Fattoria Aldobrandes
Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
This is a blend of four estate grown grape varieties: Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and a dash of Counoise. It's well-structured and very generous on the palate with dark berried fruit, raspberries and spice. Organic.
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.
A solid, muscular red from Tuscany, this is the greatest Solaia ever made. Dark ruby in color, with extremely ripe raisin and spice aromas. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of polished tannins and a long, long finish that's big and fruity Best after 2004.

The 2001 Solaia, far superior to the overrated 1997 (to which I also prefer the 1999 and 1994) is a classic example of central Tuscan Cabernet at its best, ruby-purple in color, warm and explosive in its expression of black currant fruit, tobacco, tar, and graphite, superbly concentrated and dense on the palate but balanced and shapely at the same time and with a noble austerity and grip on the finish which resembles the best of Bordeaux. The wine is a sure bet for another two decades of superb drinking.
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.

<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>
