Solaia, which means the 'sunny one' in Italian, is a 25 acre south-west facing vineyard that is contiguous to the Tignanello vineyard in Chianti Classico. Solaia is made from the best grapes grown in the sunniest part of the estate's best vineyard—it is produced only in exceptional vintages.
Antinori Solaia Super Tuscan is intensely ruby red and expresses rich, warm aromas. On the palate, the ripe red fruit and spices, in addition to deep floral notes, define the wine's complex structure. The palate is succulent, rich, enveloping and sweet thanks to the presence of dense, supple, rounded tannins. The vibrant acidity contributes to the excellent expressiveness of the flavors and contributes to the highly pleasurable, long and persistent finish. (from the producer)
