Read moreThe 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. It is certainly much more opulent, with sweeter, jammier, richer fruit than the 1988.

Very deep crimson. Slightly tired nose. Sweet but a bit simple and lacking freshness. Dusty. I suspect this may have been a bad bottle. [ Source: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/tastings/search?keywords=Solaia&query_field=title_t-country_t-regions_txt&perpage=20&page=2 ]
