Solaia is a ten hectare (25 acre) vineyard with a southwestern exposure at 1250-1325 feet (350-400 meters) above sea level and is located at our Tenuta Tignanello estate; the soil is hard limestone-rich rock known in Italian as “albarese”. The Marchesi Antinori firm produced its first vintage of this wine in 1978 with an initial blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, used once again in 1979. The blend was modified in the following vintages with the introduction of 20% of Sangiovese and the balance of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc was altered as well until the current blend was reached. Solaia is produced only in superior vintages and none was made in 1980, 1981, 1983,1984, and 1992.

how to serve

  • Serving Temperature 18°C
  • Type:Red Wine
  • Classification:I.G.T
  • Year:2015
  • Region:Toscana
  • Grapes:Cabernet sauvignon 75%, cabernet franc 5%, sangiovese 20%
  • Fermentation:The grapes, once in the cellar, were destemmed and the grapes hand sorted with the objective of moving only the finest berries into the tanks. During the fermentation phase much care and attention was given to the extraction, using only the softest punching down of the cap of skins and rack and return (delestage) techniques in order to fully respect the varietal aromas and the elevated color content of the berries
  • Aging:The wine was finally blended and bottled, then aged for a year in bottle before commercial release
  • Alcohol:14% vol
  • Color:The wine shows an elevated color intensity, a sign which, from the very beginning, indicates its importance
  • Perfume:The nose is ample and complex, full of fruity and varietal aromas and sensations which begin with black cherries and ripe red fruit and finish with liquorice, coffee, and toasted oak. On the palate the tannins are supple and balanced
  • Flavour:The wine is savory and mineral, but soft as well; its aftertaste recalls sweet notes of cacao, vanilla, and black and red berry fruit which linger and last
  • Matching:Red meat, roasts and noble game.
  • Serving Temperature:18°C
