This vintage of Solengo is slightly more floral and delicate when compared to the more robust and generous 2004 vintage. The wine is deep and penetrating with lingering aromas of forest berry and rose petal and exhibits remarkable harmony. It’s still tight in the mouth with fine texture and length — unique and distinctive, with gorgeous feminine and floral intensity. Drink after 2010.

Very ripe berry, coffee and meat aromas follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Tight and structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2011.

Argiano, based in Montalicino, has produced a superb Solengo in 2005. This French oak-aged blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Syrah presents a lovely core of inner sweetness, with tons of complexity and distinctiveness. There is terrific energy and focus in its sweet dark fruit, smoke, licorice, and wild herbs, with well-integrated tannins and notable balance. This medium-bodied effort needs another year or two to come together, but it is already delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2020.
