Solaia by Marchesi Antinori was born on the Tignanello hill, from the best grapes from the best vineyard. The rest is passion, care, attention and research. Thus was born Solaia, produced with the most selected Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese grapes from the vineyard of the same name.
The selected and delicately pressed grapes are then transferred by gravity into the tanks. During fermentation and maceration, also taking into account the particularities of the vintage, a correct balance is maintained between the fruit and the quality of the tannin. Once the skins and wine have been separated, malolactic fermentation begins which, in barriques, enhances the complexity and pleasantness of the wine. The aging process takes place in new French oak barrels for about 18 months. After an initial period of refinement in separate lots, these are assembled to complete the evolution in wood.
