Winemakers Note

Historical data The Solaia vineyard extends over an area of approximately 20 hectares (49 acres) at an altitude between 350 and 400 meters above sea level (1148-1312 feet), facing south-west, on calcareous rocky soils rich in very fine gravel (scheletro) and marl and limestone (Galestro) located on the Tignanello estate. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time with the 1978 vintage. Original grape variety ratios were 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. This same blend was replicated in 1979 while for the following vintages 20% Sangiovese was added and some other adjustments were made to the ratio of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, until its final blend emerged. Solaia is only made in exceptional vintages and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984 and 1992. The winemaker’s notes The 2017 vintage will be remembered for its unusual weather conditions, marked by lower yields and relatively dry climate trends. In vintages as peculiar as this one, experience and a thorough understanding of the vineyard play an even more important role. If the 2016 vintage is timid and introverted, Solaia 2017 expresses right away its outgoing personality. Rich, intense and mouth-filling it preserves the elegance and balance that have always defined Solaia’s unique style. Tasting notes Solaia 2017 is an intense, deep ruby red color. Its nose is impressive with intense notes of dark, ripe fruit with scents of blackberries, black currants with balsamic hints of fresh mint and myrtle. Its bouquet is completed by refined spicy aromas of white pepper, toasted cinnamon and cocoa powder. Its palate is rich and mouth-filling; soft, velvety, vibrant tannins impart a lengthy finish and persistent aftertaste where toasty notes reappear and accent the finish.
