The 2010 Solaia coming from the famous Tuscan wine region shows a deep ruby red color. On the palate the wine is smooth, thanks to perfectly ripe grapes and displays aromas of sweet notes of red berry fruit and spices. The wine impresses for its ripeness of flavor as well as for its ample and supple structure. The 2010 Solaia is characterized by a great elegance and admirable balance. It enjoys a sustained finish which echoes the fragrances first felt on the nose.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Solaia puts on an incredible show that hits all the senses and keeps your unyielding attention for as long as there is wine in the bottle. There are various ways to describe the bouquet. First, is the wine's sweet side, as this beautiful 75-20-5 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc delivers ripe cherry, black currant, baking spice and dark chocolate. After that, the wine becomes redolent of tobacco, balsam, bay leaf, rum cake and dark licorice. The bouquet is all encompassing and complete. A firmly structured backbone is padded generously by the fleshy richness of its consistency. This is a gorgeous wine that will age for decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040.
