A Super-Tuscan that is crafted for the long haul, this blend of Bordeaux varieties from Montalcino is a powerhouse of a wine. Poised and alive with vibrancy, the Solengo draws you in with its structure, and keeps you enchanted to the end with its rich non-fruit character; think the aromas of a well-heeled cigar lounge. Youthful and bright right now, this wine is only hinting at its true potential, and with time will open and showcase its exceptional class.
"The 2019 Solengo seduces with its richly decadent display of vanilla and mocha-tinged dark fruits and spices, which are wonderfully lifted by minty herbal tones and white smoke. This enters the palate like weighted velvet, smooth and fleshy at first, yet lively, as mineral-tinged black currents mixed with fine grained tannins, clamping down with youthful poise. It will be many years before the 2019 is ready to show its best, but it will certainly be worth the wait." Eric Guido (Vinous) 96 points
