Antinori Solaia 2004
Extremely intense ruby red color, and good complex fruit aromas without excessive hints of oak. With aeration after opening, the wine gradually releases delicate hints of mint and licorice.
At the moment of release on the market, Solaia 2004 has a youthful palate with clear fruit and tannins. The well-sustained acidity makes the wine lingering and tangy on the palate. Bottle-aging will confer the wine with softness and texture appropriate to its considerable polyphenolic substance.
The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.
