Solaia 2017 is an intense, deep ruby red color. Its nose is impressive with intense notes of dark, ripe fruit with scents of blackberries, black currants with balsamic hints of fresh mint and myrtle. Its bouquet is completed by refined spicy aromas of white pepper, toasted cinnamon and cocoa powder. Its palate is rich and mouth-filling; soft, velvety, vibrant tannins impart a lengthy finish and persistent aftertaste where toasty notes reappear and accent the finish.
Super-restrained cassis fruit with an almost blueberry maturity in front of violet, clove and blond tobacco spiciness. Retasting the wine the next day, it shines with graphite minerality, pure leather, and a touch of lemon thyme. Creamy and full on the palate, it has refined and meaty tannins, with lively acidity and great balance overall. You would not think this wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 18 months because of the great fruit concentration on display, but the top quality of the oak used is evident. The potential of Solaia is to be seen over the years, to discover its character as it matures. It's never cutesy, always elegant. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040
