‘A very accomplished and impressive Solaia' (Colin Hay)

Op het iconische Tignanello-domein van Marchesi Antinori is één van de grootste Super Tuscans geboren: Solaia. In het royale wijnjaar 1978 bracht de Tignanello-wijngaard een overschot aan prachtig gerijpte cabernet sauvignon druiven op; méér dan nodig voor de sangiovese-heavy blend. Er werd besloten om het overschot te gebruiken om een moderne tegenhanger te maken. In Solaia werd Tignanello gespiegeld: een wijn waarin cabernet sauvignon juist eerste viool speelde, aangevuld met cabernet franc (en sinds 1980 ook sangiovese). Inmiddels is Solaia uitgegroeid tot de absolute Grand Vin van Marchesi Antinori en één van de meest gezochte wijnen van Italië.

Solaia behoort tot de absolute top van de Super Tuscans, samen met Sassicaia, Ornellaia en Masseto. Dat Solaia minder bekend is, kan eenvoudig verklaard worden door zijn geringe productie, waardoor hij minder zichtbaar is in sterrenrestaurants en wijncollecties. Solaia wordt alleen in goede jaren gemaakt.

Solaia 2020 is een blend van 70% cabernet sauvignon, 15% sangiovese en 15% cabernet franc druiven geoogste van de gelijknamige wijngaard die de meest zonnige (Solaia betekent ook ‘de zonnige’) wijngaard is van het Tignanello-landgoed. Antinori: ‘The very best grapes from the very best vineyard. All the rest is passion, the utmost care and research.’

Italië expert Antonio Galloni van Vinous schreef: ‘The 2020 is a terrific example of the recent stylistic shift at Antinori’. Waar Antinori inderdaad voorheen opulente en krachtige wijnen maakte die gekenmerkt werden door een flinke dosis hout, streeft men tegenwoordig naar verfijning en uitdrukking van terroir en oogstjaar - en dat maakt deze jaargang subliem.

A great vintage of the iconic Solaia, full of cloves, sage, graphite, grilled dried herbs, underbrush and roasted cherry pit. There's fruit too, bilberry and cassis, juicy and mouthwatering, both understated and exuberant, ensuring a Tuscan fingerprint despite its majority Cabernet Sauvignon construction. Has grip and length, and effortless charm, reflecting an excellent vintage with low yields after a hot dry summer. Antinori family showing once again why this wine, that comes from 20ha the sunniest slopes of the Tignanello estate, set at 350-400m altitude, is so hard to resist.

Subtle and beautiful on the nose with currants, flowers and light sage aromas that follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Extremely polished and poised. Classy.

The 2020 Solaia is an infant. I expected a more exuberant wine, but the 2020 is built along more classic lines. Black cherry, plum, gravel, incense, smoke, pencil shavings and spice all open effortlessly. As always, Solaia is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine, but it is a Cabernet that is distinctly Italian, with plenty of Tuscan acid and structure driving through the mid-palate and into the finish. The 2020 is a terrific example of the recent stylistic shift at Antinori. In the past, richness and opulence were qualities of a vintage that would have been amplified in the vineyard and cellar. Today, the aim is to capture a more balanced expression of these kinds of vintages, and that very much comes through.

The 2020 Solaia is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs a little coaxing to bring out notes of warm cassis, black cherry compote, and black raspberries, followed by hints of cedar chest, unsmoked cigars, violets, and cardamom. The full-bodied palate is densely laden with rich, bold black fruits, supported by a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and jaw-dropping tension, finishing long and lifted.

Baked black fruit, ripe, fragrant and intense on the nose. Bright and sour fruit on the palate, quite a sharp initial tang from the high acidity before rich, sunny, ripe strawberries and raspberries come into play with liquorice, toast and cedar aspects giving the spiced element to the expression and graphite offering minerality. This is a powerful wine no doubt, bordering on too hedonistic at times - a result of the hot and dry summer, it's sensual, rich and flashy but the sense of control and layers of juicy freshness help balance the opulence with refinement. Clearly confident and charismatic, fans of this style will delight with Solaia in 2020. Made by Renzo Cotarella, Stefano Caraneto and Pietro Dogliani.

A very accomplished and impressive Solaia. The minerality is very evident. Tasted alongside Massetino, this is a little richer and broader aromatically, but also less effusive and more held back at this stage too. There’s a subtle florality, a little note of sage too, and freshly grated liquorice root. But it’s the patchouli and the parfumiers’ essences of dried flowers that give this its aromatic identity. On the palate this is pure and quite classical, with incredibly soft tannins and lovely cedary and graphite notes. It’s rather more Bordellais than Massetino in a way. Lithe and with great layering and complexity, this is very long and exudes harmony and balance. As ever for me, this seems the most stylish and refined of the super-Tuscan superstars.

Inky dark in appearance, the 2020 Solaia is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller percentages of Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. This vintage unfolds to exuberant richness and thick layers of blackberry and plum. The tannins are sweet and expertly crafted, adding both depth and fruit weight. The 2020 vintage is quite bold, and it plays its best cards in terms of texture and mouthfeel. It’s a bigger, more accessible wine compared to the last two vintages on the market. Spice, toasted coffee bean and more dark fruit color this full-bodied Tuscan red.
