2001 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

SKU #1012532 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Solaia, far superior to the overrated 1997 (to which I also prefer the 1999 and 1994) is a classic example of central Tuscan Cabernet at its best, ruby-purple in color, warm and explosive in its expression of black currant fruit, tobacco, tar, and graphite, superbly concentrated and dense on the palate but balanced and shapely at the same time and with a noble austerity and grip on the finish which resembles the best of Bordeaux. The wine is a sure bet for another two decades of superb drinking. (DT) Inner quote mark (4/2006)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2001 Solaia is similar to the 1999, but with an added level of finesse that takes the place of some of the brute power found in the 1999. The 2001 drinks well better young than the 1999, but it is also likely to mature earlier. Drink now through 2031. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Masses of coffee and blackberry character in this youthful wine. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, loads of fruit and excellent wood. Big and juicy, with a long, long finish. A fine wine. Needs time. *Cellar Selection* (JS) Inner quote mark (10/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cabernet Sauvignon, with 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc. Very dark crimson. Sweet and round Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, long, tannins brilliantly managed. There's a streak of refreshing spearmint here, a hint of quinine. Intense, pungent and very complex. Very long. 18.5/20 Points (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2009)
