Notes from the Winemaker:
Graziella and Gianfranco Soldera worked for 40 years to enhance the land and soil that nourishes their Sangiovese vineyards in Case Basse®. More than just a winery, the property has played host to ongoing viticultural research and constant efforts to improve winemaking in the region. They enforce an utmost adherence to nature and terroir, hardly interfering in the vinification process and thereby deferring always to the inherent nuances and splendor of their fruit. The natural vinegrowing and winemaking project at Soldera® is based on a fundamental principle: to produce a fine wine it is necessary to look after not only the vines, but also the surrounding environment. The cellar at Case Basse is located 14m underground and was built using only natural materials and carefully avoiding concrete. It is a place made for wine: “a belly destined to house and protect something precious,” to use Gianfranco Soldera’s own words. Every one of their annual 15,000 resulting bottles is unparalleled.

Soldera uses 100% natural farming and winemaking methods. All grapes are harvested by hand and meticulously destemmed, sorted, and individually inspected. Natural fermentation is carried out in Slavonian oak vats. Frequent remontages, tastings, and tests are performed on the wine as it ferments. Soldera ages five years in large Slavonian oak casks, away from noise, temperature changes and odors.

Tasting Notes:
The wine presents a vivid garnet red color and is characterized by a high spherical perception and persistency. It possesses a noticeable aroma intensity, mainly due to fruity and floral aroma. Astringency and structure are quite well perceived.

Ratings & Reviews

96+ Points - Vinous Media (2014 Vintage):
"In 2014, the very challenging, wet growing season yielded just a single cask of Sangiovese that I was able to taste a few times before it was bottled. From the beginning, the 2014 was mesmerizing. It is all that and more today. Powerful and yet translucent in the glass, the 2014 presents a beguiling mélange of dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and leather. I would be in no rush to open the 2014 today, as it is still very young. Soldera has historically done quite well in difficult years. I won’t be at all surprised if the 2014 turns out even better than this note suggests." - Antonio Galloni (July 2020)
