Col Solare 2012
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you! If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Special Instructions' at the checkout.
We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please either 'ASK A QUESTION' or leave us a message in the 'Special Instructions' at checkout.

Col Solare is Italian for 'shining hill'; an appropriate name for this ultra-luxury Cabernet Sauvignon blend which represents the pinnacle of the talents of two influential wine producers from Italy and America. Tuscany’s Marchesi Antinori and Washington State’s Chateau Ste. Michelle have joined forces to realise a shared vision - to craft Washington State's premier Cabernet Sauvignon dominant wine using fruit from the regions top vineyards.
Col Solare's estate vineyard on Red Mountain was designed and planted according to the same specifications that the Antinori family uses in its own estate vineyards in Tuscany and Umbria. The orientation, spacing and density were matched with the site to ensure uniform ripening and fruit quality. With the winery at its apex, the estate vineyard was planted in a radial pattern, like the sun's rays, which follows the natural contours of the site. Blocks of Bordeaux varieties and Syrah were sited on the vineyard according to their sensitivity to prevailing wind patterns and solar and shade angles during the day.
Col Solare is a premium wine which offers flavours of crushed berries, cassis, and hints of tobacco, along with a silky palate and a lingering finish.
