Cabernet Sauvignon, with 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc. Very dark crimson. Sweet and round Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, long, tannins brilliantly managed. There's a streak of refreshing spearmint here, a hint of quinine. Intense, pungent and very complex. Very long.

The 2001 Solaia, far superior to the overrated 1997 (to which I also prefer the 1999 and 1994) is a classic example of central Tuscan Cabernet at its best, ruby-purple in color, warm and explosive in its expression of black currant fruit, tobacco, tar, and graphite, superbly concentrated and dense on the palate but balanced and shapely at the same time and with a noble austerity and grip on the finish which resembles the best of Bordeaux. The wine is a sure bet for another two decades of superb drinking.

Masses of coffee and blackberry character in this youthful wine. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, loads of fruit and excellent wood. Big and juicy, with a long, long finish. A fine wine. Needs time. 7,500 cases made.

Couldn't be much better. Dark ruby color, full body, rich sweet brmbly fruit with long, smooth tannins. Opens up over the course of a few hours and will drink well for many years.

I think this will be better than the 1990 eventually and was easier to perceive the power behind the tannins. Needs 20 years. 91-94

Took a long time to open, but was quite elegant when it finally did.
