Solaia IGT 2006

Antinori

€163.93

Solaia 2006 has an intense ruby ​​red color. The nose expresses a large, well-structured bouquet. The aromas of the fruit are in perfect harmony with the notes of vanilla and chocolate. On the palate the wine is powerful, supported by an evident tannic texture, but at the same time soft and very persistent. The aromas of ripe fruit, blackberry and cherry make up an intense aftertaste with an almost endless finish.

Description

From the sunniest slice of the Tignanello hill. From the best grapes of the best vineyard. The rest is passion, care, attention and research. This is how Solaia was born, produced with the most selected Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese grapes of the homonymous vineyard. Solaia is a vineyard of about 20 hectares facing south-west between 350 and 400 meters above sea level. on a rocky limestone soil with alberese and marl rock, located at Tenuta Tignanello. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time with the 1978 vintage; the initial blend was 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, which was repeated in 1979. In subsequent years 20% of Sangiovese was introduced and some corrections were made in the relationship between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, up to get to the current composition. Solaia is produced only in exceptional years and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983.1984 and 1992. Each batch is vinified separately and aged in new barriques for 18 months before assembly.
