Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Gianfranco Soldera scoured Piemonte, the Veneto, and Toscana before he settled on an abandoned, decrepit Montalcino farmhouse in 1972. He planted Sangiovese Grosso vines in two tiny vineyard plots, Case Basse (approximately 2 hectares) and Intistieti (approximately 4.5), over a two-year period (1972 and '73, respectively). In the 1990 vintage, Case Basse made its debut Brunello showing, while Intistieti was the source of Soldera's Riserva. In some years, though, the normale Brunello is wholly a Case Basse production, while in others, like 1996, it is a blend of the best from both crus. The rich color of amarena, or sour cherry, alert you to the specialness of this Riserva, and its aromas of roses and forest floor only deepen that suspicion. Dizzying, amazing, and singular, a Soldera Riserva remains something that can only be experienced.
