Heiner Lobenberg über:
Solaia 2019


Lobenberg: Der Solaia zeigt ein wunderschönes Bukett von Erdbeeren, Pflaume, auch Cassis. Unter dieser süßliche reifen Frucht liegt eine Spur verführerisch würziger Noten. Auch am Gaumen pendelt der Solaia zwischen der feinen und so klar ausgedrückten Frucht und der würzig raffinierten Komponente. 99-100/100


Falstaff über: Solaia

-- Falstaff: Dunkel leuchtendes Rubinrot mit opakem Kern. Duftende und elegante Nase, komplex, nach Cassis und Schwarzen Ribiseln, dazu feinstes Edelholz, dann wieder Wechselspiel aus reifen Brombeeren und feinen würzigen Komponenten. Am Gaumen enorm geschliffen und finessenreich, mit klarer, präsenter Frucht und wohlig eingebundenem Tannin, kommt in vielen Schichten daher, präzise, sehr lange. 99/100


Suckling über: Solaia

-- Suckling: This has a complex array of blackberries, black cherries, cocoa, dried herbs, slate, tobacco, olives and charred bark. Some dried roses and iodine, too. Medium-to full-bodied with firm yet refined tannins. Powerful, in an understated way. Long. 73% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 20% sangiovese. Try in 2025. 98/100


Jane Anson über: Solaia

-- Jane Anson: Love the depth and restrained power on display here. Made for leisurely drinking over a few hours. Cocoa powder, liqourice, blueberry, smoked herbs and raspberry fruits. Tannins have texture and grip, highlighting a lemongrass and slate roughness to the finish, all given definition by a fennel, almost hoppy bitterness on the finish. The Antinori family, with director Stefano Carpaneto are making the most of a superb vintage with this wine, highly recommended, especially with an extra few years in bottle before opening. 98/100


Wine Spectator über: Solaia

-- Wine Spectator: Youthful, featuring intense fresh black currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit wrapped in accents of cedar, Mediterranean scrub and toasty oak, with a mineral streak underlining everything. Shows a solid spine of tannins that lend support, while the dark fruit returns on the finish. Delivers terrific balance, vigor and excruciating length, yet this needs time in the bottle. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2026 through 2045. From Italy. 98/100


Galloni über: Solaia

-- Galloni: The 2019 Solaia is fabulous. Deep and exquisitely layered, the 2019 is so expressive right out of the gate. Succulent dark cherry, plum, licorice, incense, pipe tobacco, chocolate and grilled herbs all take shape. Here, too, the aromatics are alluring. Cabernet Franc is bumped up a bit in the blend, and that works so well here. Solaia is often a bombastic, intense wine. The 2019 is incredibly refined and buttoned up. Readers will have to be patient. The 2019 Solaia is the sort of wine I would like to spend a whole evening with. Aging was 18 months in 100% new French oak. 97/100


Parker über: Solaia

-- Parker: The Marchesi Antinori 2019 Solaia is another blockbuster success from Tuscany's leading wine estate. The blend sees a slightly higher percentage of Cabernet Franc and a slightly lower percentage of Sangiovese. The current mix is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Franc (which has been creeping up in recent years, especially as the climate changes). The soils at the Solaia vineyard are rich in Galestro rock, which is an especially happy pairing with Cabernet Franc in particular. Managing Director Renzo Cotarella tells me that that a vintage like 2019 is proof that the final character of a wine comes from its surrounding territory, not from the blend. This is a generous and extremely expressive edition with lots of dark fruit, spice and sweet tobacco. The tannins are beautifully velvety and soft. This is a beautiful wine that collectors will love. 97/100
