International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 88

Full, deep ruby. Spicy blackberry and cassis nose shows a roasted torrefaction aspect. Lush, dense and quite primary; generous, full and deep. An exotic hint of mint brightens the dark berry flavors. Finishes very long and ripely tannic. (Vias Imports)

The profound 1997 Solengo vino da tavola (a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon with a tiny dosage of Syrah) is spectacular. Opaque purple-colored, it displays a fabulously sweet nose of creme de cassis, new saddle leather, toasty new oak, licorice, and flowers. This wine boasts amazing richness, a huge, full-bodied impact on the palate (yet no sense of heaviness), low acidity, gorgeous ripeness, and a finish that lasts for 35+ seconds. I predict a brilliant future for this compelling proprietary red wine.

The Sangiovese really comes through, toning down the Bordeaux varietals with its earthiness; aromatic, medium finish; still plenty good but probably won't get any better
