"Wow. This is a stylish young red with currant, light herb, spice and bark aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and attractive now but better in 2020. A classic as always."

97+ Pts Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The best vintages of Solaia are 1990, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010 and now 2013. Marchesi Antinori's 2013 Solaia is a profound and meaningful wine that is based mostly on Cabernet Sauvignon with Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc in supporting roles. It sports a dark and thick texture with plump fruit and spice, grilled herb and black pepper. The bouquet is intense and layered with the kind of complexity that is best admired as the wine shifts and evolves in the glass. The textual impact is also impressive—you feel the inherent power and the structure, but these elements are never overdone. The best is yet to come; this Solaia is built for long cellar aging."


Description:

"The winter of 2013 and the preceding autumn were characterized by above average rainfall and by temperatures which were not particularly cold, with the exception of one week during the month of February when there was heavy snowfall as well. Spring began with a climate which was much like the preceding months, determining important delays in bud burst, but despite this fact the successive phases of flowering and bud set saw normal growth and development. May and June were cool and rainy, assisting vegetative growth in the vineyard, while July and August were warm and dry, but without excessive peak temperatures, and the vines continued working, recovering a large part of the delay which had previously accumulated. Ideal weather marked the month of September and the first half of October, the harvest period – in addition to continuing warmth during the day, there were significant temperature swings between this daytime heat and evening and nighttime coolness. This assisted in bringing the different grape varieties to a full and complete levels of ripeness. Picking began during the last week of September, later than usual as a harvest. The excellent weather brought out all the quality of the Cabernet Franc, picked between September 28th and 30th, while the Sangiovese was picked during the first week of October. The Cabernet Sauvignon crop was brought to the cellar between October 7th and 16th under climatic conditions which were absolutely perfect for the quality of the fruit.

Solaia is a 50 acre (20 hectare) vineyard with a southwestern exposure situated at some 1325 feet (400 meters) above sea level at the Tignanello estate. The soil consists of calcareous clays and limestone rock. The Marchesi Anttinori firm produced this wine for the first time in 1978; the initial blend, 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, was repeated in 1979. In the following years, 20% of Sangiovese was added and some corrections in the rapport between the two different Cabernets were also made, creating the current blend. The wine is only produced in high quality vintages and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983,1984, and 1992." -Winery
