The 1994 Solaia is a revelation. Though a small-scaled wine, this Solaia reveals extraordinary harmony in its roasted coffee beans, leather, spices and dark fruit, with surprising freshness and elegance. Well-kept bottles should continue to drink well for several years. By any measure the 1994 Solaia is a huge overachiever in this vintage.

A super red wine from a top Tuscan producer. Displaying inky color, intense aromas of blackberries, mint and currants, this vino da tavola is full-bodied, with full yet silky tannins and a long, long, fruity finish. 800 cases made.

About This Producer


Although the Antinori family has been making wine for over 600 years and is steeped in tradition, they haven't been afraid to modernize production and to take an innovative approach to blending. One result is the world famous Super Tuscan "Tignanello," a blend of Sangiovese (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Cabernet Franc (5%). Marchesi Piero Antinori is the current proprietor of the estate, and was instrumental in creating Tignanello, propelling the popularity of Super Tuscans worldwide.

Antinori produces wines from the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria. In addition to Tignanello, some of Antinori's most well-known wines include Solaia, Guado al Tasso, Campo di Sasso, Badia a Passignano, Pian delle Vigne, and Chianti Classico. Antinori's various estates include 1,400 hectares of vineyards planted in Bolgheri, Montalcino, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Chianti Classico, as well as the emerging locales Sovana and southern Maremma.
