Thick, dense, transparent and minty. Lively, compared with the Brunello 1999.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 137

A fine offering, the 1999 Solengo is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, and Syrah. This opaque purple-colored offering exhibits gorgeously ripe blackberry and cassis fruit mixed with scents of leather, charcoal, earth, and wood. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, with sweet tannin in the finish, it is still youthful and unevolved, but promises to drink splendidly well between 2004-2015.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A wine with a generous amount of everything, but in a harmonious, pretty way. An abundance of tobacco, cedar and berry character. Full-bodied and chewy, with loads of fruit and a long, long finish. One of the hottest wines in Tuscany at the moment. 3,165 cases made.

Very inking and loads of cherry. Drink now but has lots of backbone. Excellent super Tuscan and great year as I remember it.

Excellent complement with strongly flavored Italian food. Acidic and a lttle harsh alone.

Apparently the varietal make-up of this wine will never mirror the 1999, as the winery ceased to used Sangiovese in the cepage after this vintage. Boy was this wine in my wheelhouse! Spanish cedar, roasted tobacco, rosemary, porcini and a truckload of fruit present themselves in a truly astounding nose (god these 99?s had it goin? on?what a vintage!). Wondrous depth and richness was found within the spicy palate of pure blackberry ganache fruit that had a near-perfect presence in the mouth which, for lack of a better word, was sinful! While the wine lost a bit of steam on the finish, it was so glorious that I can'thelp but vote w/ my heart and score it 97 points. Life?s too short to not stash away a couple bottles of this elixir!
