Solaia 2000

The wine for Easter this year was a classic Italian Super Tuscan made by Antinori: Solaia 2000. It was a great match for all the rich lamb dishes we had.

Antinori Solaia 2000

Dark red ruby color with early hints  of orange at the rim. A well developed nose with signs of maturity, a bit stinky revealing subtle notes of red and black currant, mixed with green vegetables, menthol, cedar wood, graphite and coffee. A  full bodied wine, well balanced, with silky tannins and flavors of mocha, red currant, exposing a great balance between minerals, greenness and fruit. The finish is long and intense. Drinking well now and plenty of further aging potential. An elegant and old school Bordeaux like wine. 93 points

A great wine to mark an important religious event celebrated with family.

Thanks for reading!
