Antinori Solaia “Super Tuscan”

Solaia / IGT Tuscany / Super Tuscan Blend / Marchesi Antinori: Full body, rich. Black cherry, coffee, chocolate. I was originally skeptical of Super Tuscan wines. It was a marketing ploy in the 1970’s, they are made with grapes not indigenous to this region in Italy, and they are technically classified as table wine. I could not have been more wrong. Bold and beautiful, this sophisticated wine packs a big punch. The elegance of Bordeaux with a Tuscan temper. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc.
