The 2018 Solaia is a blend of around 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 7% Cabernet Franc. Monica Larner reports that the amount of Cabernet Franc has been increased for this vintage and can be expected to climb higher for subsequent vintages as the vines age and offer fruit with more complexity.

Solaia 2018 is all about elegance, unlike past vintages that can be robust and concentrated. Galloni (98 Points) finds it to be medium-bodied with “striking purity and exceptional beauty”, successfully capturing the elegance of this vintage. Offering splendid cellaring potential, the Solaia 2018 can also be enjoyed young.

About Solaia

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
