A great showing from the 2007. Still very, very young and full of life. Impressive!

Revisiting this one with a sober palate and this time it is absolutely electrifying. Beautiful wine. Stingingly penetrating. Dried fruits. Great expression of Sangiovese. Like an augmented Brunello. A brunello with breast implants.

2007 Solaia. Quarantine. Decanted 1 hour before serving. Drank with steak. Decanting drastically improved the wine. It was delicious after an hour and got better. Cocoa and coffee notes upfront, mushroom, rosemary, and other herbs following. Great tannin structure and body on the finish (which improved substantially after decanting).

2007 Solaia. Greg’s bday dinner. Decanted, but poured pretty quickly. This wine was very young. Green, tight, lacking in body.

Huge wine. Dark fruit on the nose still lots of tannins but well balanced and a long finish. It's a winner.

Damn this is good juice. Big and bold but balanced. Still a baby with some baby fat in the mid palate. Really yummy now and will be great for decades.
