it's always a treat to drink Solaia, especially with a few years on it. It is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc. At age 12, this seems to ageing a bit faster than many vintages, but that puts it in a great place now. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, cherries, chocolate and slight tarragon. On the palate, this has such wonderful balance. A bit on the voluptuous side but enough acidity to balance it off. Cassis and black cherries layered with an earthy/roasted herb quality. Complex. Nice finish. Drinking well now, it should go another ten years with no problem. It went very well with stuffed mushroom caps.
