Intense ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe fruit, spices, black pepper, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Generous, vibrant and balanced on the palate with sweet, mouthfilling tannins, forward minerally hints and weight and character enhance by the complexity and finesse. On release in September 2008, Solaia 2005 is incredibly lingering and evocative of its terroir, with a distinctively varietal profile.

Wine SpectatorThis offers gorgeous aromas of blackberry, mineral and flowers follow through to a full body, with superfine tannins and a long, long finish. A complex and wonderfully structured red. Long and beautiful. Best after 2012. 3,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Solaia is elegant and refined, yet it remains incredibly primary. Still, it is hard not to admire the wine's layered expression of blue and black fruits. The oak remains prominent, but I am confident the wine will come together with bottle age. The Solaia vineyard is one of the most unique terroirs in Italy, and the wine has a track record of developing beautifully in bottle, even in smaller vintages. It will be fascinating to follow this Solaia as it matures. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2023.
