2006 Solaia, Marchesi Antinori

Toscana IGT

$319.00 per Bottle


10 Bottles




"Displays loads of mint, eucalyptus, currant and meat on the nose. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit, yet reserved and structured. Mouthpuckering now from all the tannins, but this will give incredible pleasure in years to come. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2014." Wine Spectator

"This fourth flight brings us into what I consider a real Golden Era for Solaia that started with the 2004. A young, potent wine, the 2006 Solaia out of magnum still needs quite a bit of time. Even so, its towering stature is evident. A rush of blackberry jam, grilled herbs, espresso, licorice and spice builds as the 2006 shows off its explosive energy and drive."

"A clarity and brilliance to this Solaia now with plums, light chocolate and meat. Full body and round and soft tannins. Juicy and delicious. Just right now where it shows the fruit and light tertiary qualities on the nose and palate. Excellent." JamesSuckling.com

"Inserted blind between the 2005 Margaux and Mouton, Antinori's 2006 Solaia performed admirably well, especially considering these were not the best bottles of the 2006 I have come across. In that context, the fact that the 2006 Solaia held up well in this flight is notable. I chose the 2006, because 2005 was not as strong in Tuscany as it was in Bordeaux, so the wine would have been at a distinct disadvantage in this setting." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Aged 12 months in new French oak. More youthful than developed – juicy, almost jammy black fruit. Greater complexity on the palate though, with a creamy texture backed up by plenty of very fine tannin. It’s very charming now – but hasn’t reached its peak of development, and really deserves more age." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
