Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
It's tough to follow a benchmark vintage like 2013, but where the '13 Solaia is classic, the 2014 is finessed; the ’14 Solaia is an elegant, accessible evocation that complements its predecessor with its racy profile. Fresh-cut herbs, licorice, warm loam, espresso and new leather frame the brambly berries and juicy cherries of this freshly acidic yet open-knit Solaia bottling. Fine-grained tannins stud the cheeks as this nervy wine crosses the palate and builds to a lingering, mineral-inflected finish. A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with about 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc, Solaia is beloved by fans of Super-Tuscan wines, and the 2014 bottling allows for earlier-than-usual drinkability (but it has the structure to drink for a decade or longer). Renzo Cotarelli and the Antinori team ferment each separate vineyard plot in small stainless steel tanks and age each separately in new oak barriques for fourteen months before assembling the blend and aging the wine in bottle.
