Solaia means the sunny one, an elite ten hectare site within the Antinori estate at Santa Cristina, contiguous to the Tenuta Tignanello vineyard which is on the same property, in the Mercatale Val di Pesa zone of Chianti Classico. Antinori first produced a single vineyard, limited release from these vines in 1978.

Grapes are harvested by hand after a careful selection aimed at retaining only the ripest fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon was macerated for three weeks, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese for a fortnight. Extractions are treated to the greatest care, alternating pumpovers with delestage according to the requirements of each component. Parcels are devatted and transferred to a selection of new French oak barriques for a spontaneous malolactic. Upon completion, the wines are assembled and matured for eighteen months in barriques while being treated to a course of racking. The best barrels are sampled and bottled, to be released after a further year of ageing.
Intense ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe fruits and spice, black pepper and chocolate, vanilla and coffee bean. Generous, vibrant and balanced on the palate with sweet, mouthfilling tannins, forward minerally hints, substantial weight and character enhanced by the complexity and finesse. A long, lingering finish, evocative of its terroir, with a profound varietal expression.
