97 Point - JamesSuckling.com: "Extremely impressive ripe dark fruits of blueberries, plums and blackberries follow through to a full body, round texture and bright acidity. The finesse and depth to this red is stunning making it a wonderful successor to 2011 Solaia. Need three or four years to soften an open. Better in 2018."
97 Point - Wine Enthusiast: "This stunning expression of Solaia opens with ample aromas of exotic spices, tilled soil, mature black-skinned fruit and an underlying whiff of fragrant blue flowers. The vibrant, elegantly structured palate doles out high-toned black cherry, ripe blackberry, white pepper, cinnamon, clove and Mediterranean herbs alongside a backbone of firm, polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2017–2032."
94 Point - Antonio Galloni - Vinous.com: "Another intense, tightly-wound wine, the 2012 Solaia is likely to require a number of years in bottle before it is ready to drink. Graphite, smoke, plums, black cherries, rose petal and mint meld together effortlessly in the glass. Here, too, the style is all about grace and finesse. The 2012 Solaia is going to require patience, but all the elements are in the right place. In 2012, the Cabernet Franc is nearly 7% of the blend, which is on the high side."
95 Point - RobertParker.com: "The 2012 Solaia is the ultimate comfort wine: It serves as a beautiful monument to the potential of Italian wine. Let me give you some context. My lukewarm review of the 2011 vintage caused some heads to turn. Happily, the previous vintage has served as a springboard for this current release. Both 2011 and 2012 come from hot climatic conditions, but these wines are very different in style and content. The 2011 heat softened the lines that make up the varietal identity of this celebrated Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Those lines are presented in sharp focus with the 2012 edition. The nose is redolent of dark berry, crushed mineral, plum, spice and touch of white pepper. The wine is integrated and seamless, but it speaks with a strong and articulate voice."

Solaia kombinerer sin intense frugt og varme, med en vidunderlig kompleksitet og mineralitet. Der er lag på lag af modne røde frugter og krydderier, og et dybt blomsterpræg føjer yderligere kompleksitet til vinen. Smagen er uovertruffen, fyldig, rund og let sødmefuld med flotte afrundede tanniner. Smagen er rig, blød og spændstig og munder ud i en flot og vedvarende eftersmag. Server Solaia til de fineste udskæringer af kalv, okse og lam.
