1995 Antinori, Solaia, Tuscany, Italy

I don’t know what I had expected from this wine, but the first hand impressions were certainly positive. Solaia came out of the glass with strutting confidence and luxurious fruits. Mid-core of the wine had an oozing glycerine note, which gave wildness, character but also on the verge on taking alcohol control. As time passed the alcohol pitch lowered, but the lovely black fruits with warm Tuscan earth and black cherries luckily stayed intact. The taste is nice – classic, a bit on the dry side and doesn’t live up to the high expectations the promising nose gave. (94)
