Ya, this didn’t suck. First time getting to try this iconic producer - loads of character and a soft, supple palate for being sangio.

This is not what I'd expect from a young Soldera, but what a wild ride. The nose was layered and intense with rich cherry and prune, followed by ash, dark soil tones, minerals and sweet tea. On the palate, it was silky and vibrant to the core with zesty acidity, showing ripe cherry, exotic spice, cedar, sweet herbs and inner floral tones. This finished lingered on the ripest and juiciest cherry fruit you can imagine. Through this all, a backdrop of fine tannin lurked, yet seldomly got in the way. Incredible.

First Soldera experience and it did not disappoint at all!!! Spices, ripe red berries, light potpourri notes. It really just dances on the palate with a unique flavor profile.

Beautiful drinking vintage that is surprisingly open & approachable with notes of cherry, leather, spice & tobacco. Y
