Lot #811. Antinori Solaia 1990

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Tuscany.
Score: 94 RP.
The 1990 Solaia is slightly more concentrated than the 1990 Tignanello, with a saturated purple color, and a classic, international nose of cassis, lead pencil, vanillin, and smoke. It is gorgeously rich, with a fat, unctuous texture, and a long, highly extracted finish. Well-balanced and already delicious, it remains unevolved and is potentially a 12-20 year wine. In the context of recent Solaias, I would rate it a worthy competitor to the other-worldly 1985. Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: Base neck or better, 2 heavily wine stained, lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled, very lightly faded labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,250
