Wine Spectator: 95 points

This is all in harmony. Aromas of mint, berry and currants. Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a long claretlike finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend really comes out now. Will age well for many years to come.--1990 Tuscany retrospective. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 points

The 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 (most recently rated 88 points).Importer: Remy Amerique, Inc., New York, NY.
