Tasting Notes

Most offers require an explanation, but this one is pretty simple. (1) This wine is made "Appassimento". The process of using lightly dried grapes (similar to Amarone but a bit less dried) which gives this wine that extra kick of fruit intensity and a little baby-fat that keeps it staying silky smooth. (2) It scored 99 points (3) It's made by a wine making family that has been at it since 1882 and; (4) It's $25 a bottle (with complimentary delivery)!

Solco catches the eye with its intense red and purple shades.  The nose reveals unmistakable aromas of red fruits, among which black cherry is a stand out, wrapped in the gentle embrace of sweet spices. A full body wine that demonstrates a refined elegance. The silky tannic texture offers a pleasant sensation of softness with a long and persistent finish.
