The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. During this entire long period, through twenty-six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions.
The vineyard is located at the Tignanello estate. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time in the year 1978, and the initial blend was 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Cabernet Franc, a formula repeated in 1979 as well. In the following years, 20% of Sangiovese was introduced and certain adjustments were also made in the rapport between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc until the current blend was settled upon. Cabernet sauvignon (72%), sangiovese (20%), cabernet franc (8%).
Solaia 2018 is an intense ruby red color.
Its nose offers intense notes of dark, ripe fruit in particular blueberries and black currants that merge seamlessly with pleasant sensations of dried flowers and lavender.
Accompanied by delicate spicy notes of white pepper and balsamic notes of mint and eucalyptus.
Sweet, well-integrated aromas of white chocolate, cotton candy and dried fruit complete its rich bouquet.
