Antinori Solaia Toscana IGT
Chianti Classico
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. A wine of massive concentration that's only ever made in the finest years, small adjustments were made to the cepage, arriving at an optimal balance of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a fifth of Sangiovese and minor portion of Cabernet Franc.

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.

Chianti Classico
Available in cases of 6
The statuesque super Tuscan cepage of Sangiovese, with smaller components of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc. Tignanello is produced exclusively from a vineyard of the same name, a parcel of some forty seven hectares on limestone soils and a southwestern exposure. It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels and the first modern Italian wine to include non traditional varieties such as Cabernet. Pointedly, it was among the first red wines of Chianti Classico to be vinified without the inclusion of white grapes.
