This is a balanced and harmonious Solengo with a nose of spice and berries. It is velvety on the palate with great structure and a long finish.
96 Points – James Suckling
“Blackberries, spice, walnuts and currants on the nose, following through to a full bodied, tight and dense palate, yet it’s agile and linear at the finish. Firm, layered tannins. This needs to come around in the bottle. One for the cellar. Try after 2024.”
92 Points – Decanter
“Earthy nose with chili undertones over creamy vanilla and black plums aromas. Dry, bold and concentrated with a spicy finish.”
93 Points – Wine Spectator
“A beam of pure blackberry, black currant, iron and earth flavors are accented by vanilla and coconut from the new oak. This red is dense, with nervous tannins that eventually dissolve into the fruit. Decant now and serve with a juicy, grilled steak or lamb chops, or wait 5 years. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2024 through 2040.”
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Sangiovese
