1998 Antinori Solaia 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 1998 Solaia from Antinori, a blend of 75% Cabernets and 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc harvested from from a single 25-acre vineyard.
'The 1998 is a classically-structured, dense, full-bodied, youthful, well-balanced wine designed for cellaring. Its opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic bouquet of black currants, vanillin, earth, tobacco, and a touch of mint. Full-bodied, moderately tannic, dense, and concentrated, this backward 1998 needs 3-4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. 93/100' Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate, 2001
