Solengo is a modern, well balanced and full-bodied wine. It has a deep black, purple colour with a bouquet of ripe fruits, such as black currant and blackberry, infused with toasty oak. It is soft on the palate with great concentration of lush fruit nicely in balance with its fine, smooth tannins. The palate finds impressive structure and complexity tempered by exemplary tannic extracts. This high profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics with a sunny character. Its grace and gentleness enable an early drinking, nevertheless after a few years of bottle ageing, the wine will develop more complexity and depth.

Wine SpectatorAromas of vanilla, licorice, mint and berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a vanilla cream and raspberry aftertaste. Very jammy style. But it grows on you. Move over Australia. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2007.

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Solengo, a blend of equal parts Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, opens with a huge, brooding nose followed by masses of super-ripe dark fruit, cassis, licorice, earth and black pepper nuances that coat the palate with notable length. Made in an unabashedly rich and concentrated style, it is an excellent effort. Only the imposing tannic structure of the vintage keeps the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
