We investigate the mechanism of formation of supermixed solitonlike states in bosonic binary mixtures loaded in ring lattices. We evidence the presence of a common pathway which, irrespective of the number of lattice sites and upon variation of the interspecies attraction, leads the system from a mixed and delocalized phase to a supermixed and localized one, passing through an intermediate phase where the supermixed soliton progressively emerges. The degrees of mixing, localization, and quantum correlation of the two condensed species, quantified by means of suitable indicators commonly used in statistical thermodynamics and quantum information theory, allow one to reconstruct a bidimensional mixing-supermixing phase diagram featuring two characteristic critical lines. Our analysis is developed both within a semiclassical approach capable of capturing the essential features of the two-step mixing-demixing transition and with a fully quantum approach.
