Solaia is the crowning achievement of the illustrious Antinori stable. It is one of the most refined and coveted Super Tuscans.
Extending to 321 acres under vine, the two flagship wines of Marchesi Antinori are in fact located on the very same hillside, producing two of Italy’s most influential cuvées - Tignanello and Solaia.
Solaia is sourced from a 50-acre parcel of southwest-facing vineyards at an altitude of 350-400 metres. With the most sunlight exposure of any vines in the Tenuta Tignanello estate, Solaia is an interesting foil to the legendary Sangiovese-based Tignanello. Still primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Solaia began its life as a Bordeaux blend of two Cabernets (20% Franc), until the gradual introduction of up to 20% Sangiovese was introduced to complete the composition as we know it today. This wine is produced only in exceptional vintages
