Solaia was first created as an experiment in 1978 when the Chianti Classico vineyards for the illustrious Tignanello – Solaia’s sister wine – produced an excess of Cabernet grapes. Marchesi Antinori decided to make a virtue out of necessity and used the additional grapes to produce 3,600 bottles of a wine that became known as Solaia. Today, Solaia and Tignanello are still produced side by side in the Tenuta Tignanello estate though the grapes for each wine are clearly demarcated as are the facilities where they are made.

Tasting Notes

The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Solaia offers a uniquely floral personality with wild rose and lilac that comes as a surprise, especially if you are expecting the more robust and opulent dark fruit associated with this vintage.. This is a bouquet-driven wine, showing great oak choices that are synergistic with the light and considerably thinner palate. Dried or pressed flowers cede to cherry, blueberry, some red meat char and a light touch of cinnamon.
