Antinori Solaia 1999

Antinori Solaia 750ml 1999       
Sku: 12566

 Wine Advocate 94 points (Jan 2009)
The 1999 Solaia is packed with fruit but its intensity drops off a bitt on the mid-palate. Despite the wine’s sweetness, the 1999 remains a surprisingly austere Solaia and in this vintage Tignanello offers better balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Oct 31 2002)
Bright aromas of crushed berry and raspberry, with a hint of mineral. Full-bodied and very round, with lovely velvety tannins and a long finish. Big and boisterous. Almost rustic, but hell, it's a beauty. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2006. 7,000 cases made. –JS
The first two bottles I tasted of the 1999 Solaia were corked, but the third was brilliant. Its black/purple color is followed by a sumptuous bouquet of licorice, blackberries, mint, and cassis, all presented in a concentrated, medium to full-bodied, dense yet elegant style. Although still young, it is undoubtedly the qualitative equivalent of a Bordeaux first or second growth. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016.
