More info

The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member, of the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”, the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild. All throughout its history, twenty-six generations long, the Antinori family has managed the business directly making innovative and sometimes bold decisions while upholding the utmost respect for traditions and the environment.

Solaia is a 20 hectare vineyard with a southwestern exposure located at an altitude between 350-400 meters above sea level and with a stony soil of hard limestone and flaky calcareous clay rock. The vineyard is located at the Tignanello estate. The Antinori family produced this wine for the first time in the year 1978. In the following years certain adjustments were made in the rapport between Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese grapes until the current blend was settled upon. Solaia is produced only in exceptional vintages.

Longevity 15-20 years.
