Good crimson hue; sangiovese now accounts for 70% (previously 50%) of the blend; savoury black fruits and sour cherry have the expected structure, especially the extended tannins of the sangiovese.

Big, juicy New World style with pretty fruit and good tannin structure.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
An elegant, medium to full-bodied dry red with a briary, spicy expression of small black and red fruits tightly wound around a fine, dusty undercarriage and punctuated by a fresh, vibrant acidity. Laced with nuances of spice and tomato stalk and backed by meaty, gamey aspects, its deep, penetrative core of fruit has a slightly baked currant-like aspect, but plenty of depth of ripe, sumptuous flavour.

An interesting 50/50 blend, sangiovese sour cherry aromas leading the bouquet, cabernet filling the palate, then both combining to provide the savoury tannins on the finish.

Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
A well-brushed carpet of furry tannin is the hallmark of this Sangiovese Cabernet blend, some mint and roasting herbs, light cassis and a bit of olive here too. Region first, varieties second—well worth checking out.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
The blend works well (as it does in Italy); the plum and cherry sangiovese component tempered by quite austere cabernet, the latter punching above its weight. Sangiovese (65%)/Cabernet Sauvignon (35%).

Nick Stock (2005 Vintage) says
A playful take on the Super-Tuscan names Solaia, Sassicaia and Ornellaia, Hollaia offers simple sweet, ripe fruit aromas, toasty oak, dark briary complexity and some meaty, gamey plenty of tannin ripeness, plum and cherry fruits; this trades on rustic charm and is not to be taken too seriously.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Fragrant red fruits and flower blooms; light-bodied, but has good fruit intensity; minimal tannins, a nice touch of oak. The Hollick version of the distinguished Italian super-Tuscan Solaia. Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon.
