Always a voluptuous and rounded red. Gorgeous blackberry, black currant and lead pencil aromas. Full-bodied, with well integrated, soft tannins. Long, fruity aftertaste.

MILESTONES (1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010) I must admit, vino-dissident that I am...two of my favorite wines of the night were in this "milestone" group. As for the rest of this bunch, other than the two: over the last eight vintages or so, there is a definite movement towards bigger wines, more fruit, more tannin...and they're getting more expensive too, usually reaching towards $300 a bottle. I'm not a fan; I love the elegance of the older wines. One of the wines I adored in this flight was the 1999, with its toast-and-chocolate nose, spicy finish, rich and well-knit palate, perky acid and soft tannin. And, because it's an older Solaia (paradoxically)...you can find it for under $200. A little pricier and younger--but my favorite of the last decade--is the 2004; it's alive, rich, vibrant, silky, concentrated, with intriguing aromas of apricot pit, apple and red fruits. Will age well.

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.
