It smells like sweets. It felt like the typical astringency from Antinori.
Good wood flavour.

4/5

Buying wine as Antinori Toscane Solaia 2014 at Uvinum and will not regret it.
Deep colour at first sight. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me. Softer than 2014.

A tender berry smell. Distinctive oxidation notes on the palate.
I want more and I will buy it again in Uvinum.

We paired it with a wide range of tapas. One of my friends recommended it to me.
Attractive cherry red with a low layer . Smells of wood. I kept the taste in my mouth for a long time.
