Antinori Solaia 2005
Intense ruby red in color with aromas of ripe fruit, spices, blackpepper, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Generous, vibrant and balanced on the palate with sweet, mouthfilling tannins, minerally hints and weight and character enhanced by the complexity and finesse. The wine is incredibly evocative of its terroir, with a long, distinctive finish.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc.
