Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Dense yet surprisingly ethereal, this wine wafts with pure Sangiovese Grosso fruit, fresh-cut herbs, wildflowers, cypress trees and earth. This exquisite Rosso, which is essentially a Brunello, could come only from Gianfranco Soldera; its silky palate coats the palate with fine-grained tannins, releasing a complex inner perfume as it builds to a spice and mineral-inflected finish. Soldera had, since his first harvest in 1975, always vinified the same way--aging his wine traditionally in large Slavonian oak for five years and then an additional six to 12 months in bottle before release--but in 2008, Soldera shifted his protocol, aging partly in botti and finishing the wine’s aging in stainless steel before bottling. Although no longer called a Brunello, this ’08 Rosso IGT is a Soldera Brunello in everything but its name; it’s a powerful yet scintillating wine, and it belongs in the cellars of serious Brunello enthusiasts.
