2012 Solaia, Antinori, IGT Tuscany

Restrained exoticism on the nose with notes of cassis, lavender and musky white pepper and a darkness to the fruit character without any suggestion of it being dried. This theme continues in the mouth with flavours including black plum, cinnamon bark, pot pourri and roasted herbs. Sleek and polished yet unmistakably Italian, this has great vibrancy and feels much fresher than I remember the 2011 being at the same stage.
