Solaia is made using the grapes from the sunniest part of the Tignanello vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiocese grapes are fermented seperately and then blended together before ageing in barriques for 12 months. A further 12 months ageing in bottle is required before the wine is released with a long life ahead of it. Aromas of cassis, black plum, liquorice and violet leap out the glass. The palate is dense and structured with a spicy edge. This is a classy Super Tuscan with bags of flavour.

I consider the 2004 Solaia the first of the truly epic modern Solaia. This is the first vintage in which the component wines were aged separately and blended towards the end of aging. That, along with more care in managing temperature in fermentation and aging, and the the fabulous vintage combine to produce a super-silky, polished Solaia. Sweet, refined tannins and pure sophistication are the hallmarks of this dazzling, totally head-spinning Solaia. At nearly ten years of age, the 2004 is just as magnificent as it has always been.
