Incredibly rare bottle of Brunello di Montalcino 1979 by Case Basse of Gianfranco Soldera, iconic producer of the region that unfortunately has left us last year.
He grew up in Italy’s banking capital of Milan and eventually became an insurance broker. In 1970, he moved to Tuscany and purchased the 23-hectare Case Basse wine estate located in the southwest quadrant of the Montalcino appellation. He planted Sangiovese vines in 1972 and 1973 and immediately set out to make a non-interventionist’s style of Brunello, thus becoming one of the pioneers for what would become the natural wine movement. 1979 is the third vintage of Brunello ever produced by him. Known for his strong will and intransigent views on the fundamentals of winemaking, Gianfranco Soldera would soon win a loyal following among the great wine collectors and cult wine enthusiasts of the world. The success and raging popularity of Brunello di Montalcino today is due in large measure to the efforts of this stubborn genius.
