The 2012 Solaia is intensely ruby red in color with purple highlights. On the nose, it expresses elegant varietal character and freshness. This vintage has classic style. It is characterized on the palate by a pleasurable harmony of flavors created through a fine balance of acidity, tannins and a high level fruit. The flavors linger on the palate with grand personality and great persistence, which make the finish exceptionally complex and vibrant.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc

The 2012 Solaia is the ultimate comfort wine: It serves as a beautiful monument to the potential of Italian wine. Let me give you some context. My lukewarm review of the 2011 vintage caused some heads to turn. Happily, the previous vintage has served as a springboard for this current release. Both 2011 and 2012 come from hot climatic conditions, but these wines are very different in style and content. The 2011 heat softened the lines that make up the varietal identity of this celebrated Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Those lines are presented in sharp focus with the 2012 edition. The nose is redolent of dark berry, crushed mineral, plum, spice and touch of white pepper. The wine is integrated and seamless, but it speaks with a strong and articulate voice.
