“The 2008 Solaia is richer and darker than the Tignanello, but it isn't an appreciably more complex or complete wine. It shows gorgeous depth and textural richness to match an expressive core of blackberry jam, smoke, scorched earth, crushed rocks and cassis. This is a beautiful wine but not as great as I had hoped. The 2008 Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in 100% new oak.” Antonio Galloni
‘Experience’ is an appropriate word to describe The Antinori family. Indeed, they are producing wines for exactly 26 generations - since 1385.
Still family-owned, Marchesi Antonori is one of the most famous Italian wines House, revealing the best of Italy through seven estates in Tuscany, Piedmont, Lombardy and Puglia.
But one country was not enough - exporting their ‘savoir-faire’, they are now established in Napa and Columbia Valley, Chile, Hungary, Malta and Romania. Always combining tradition and innovation, they are continuously walking around the world for new places with a high winemaking potential.
Recognised for their remarkable Tuscan wines, they played a large part in the "Super-Tuscan" revolution of the 1970s, and especially produced the Tignanello, Antinori’s most famous wine, considered as one of world’s great icon wines.
