Description
Mixed lot - Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera Riserva; 1999 x 1 & 2000 x 1 - Brunello di Montalcino - 2 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - Italy

Radiant, pure Sangiovese fruit explodes from the glass of Soldera’s expressive, layered ’13 Rosso IGT, a Brunello in all but its name; warm loam, graphite, crushed violet petals, baking spices, and telltale Montalcino aromatics provide the backdrop. Dazzling and rich, this wine glides across the palate with a silky, electric feel, and its piquant minerality offers a counterweight to the bewitching sweet inner perfume. Impeccably balanced, this Rosso’s chewy, fine-grained tannins match with pulsating acidity, suggesting that this drop-dead gorgeous wine will drink for decades.
Since his first harvest in 1975, Soldera 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.
