Extremely intense ruby red colour, and good complex fruit aromas without excessive hints of oak. With aeration after opening, the wine gradually releases delicate hints of mint and liquorice. At the moment of release on the market, Solaia 2004 has a youthful palate with clear fruit and tannins. The well-sustained acidity makes the wine lingering and tangy on the palate. Bottle-ageing will confer the wine with softness and texture appropriate to its considerable polyphenolic substance.

Wine EnthusiastThe 2004 Solaia is dense and concentrated with loads of character and defining aromatics: plump blackberry, chocolate fudge, exotic spice, peppercorn and smooth balsam notes. The real pleasure comes in the mouth where it delivers smooth elegance and an extra long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe thrilling 2004 Solaia (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc) is clearly one of the highlights of this great vintage. Endowed with massive amounts of concentration as well as structure, it is a big, powerful Solaia that does not sacrifice elegance or balance in its full-bodied personality. Packed with the essence of blackberries, chocolate, tar, smoke, cassis and menthol, this layered beauty exhibits great length and a persistent, warmly alcoholic finish. It has been stunning on the three occasions I have had it so far and is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.
