Antinori Solaia 2016

100 points is very rare..

..until (or only) Solaia made it a common occurrence. Solaia 2015 impressed the world when two acclaimed critics, Wine Advocate and James Suckling, concurrently awarded it 100 points. Now, the new release Solaia 2016 bagged 100 points again from them both.

Perfect score, four times over. Indeed, the name Solaia, Italian for "Sun", is befitting. Rays of brilliant sun shines through and imbue the grapes with perfect intensity and concentration.

Wine Advocate 100 Points
"I feel like 2015 is the Dolce & Gabbana of the situation and the 2016 is the Armani Privé. The personalities of the two wines are distinct, yet my admiration for each is identical." 

James Suckling 100 Points
"Speechless here. I thought the 2015 was already perfect but this is perfect, too. But in a different way. It is so structured and multidimensional."

The best things shan't be taken for granted. Limited quantities only.
