Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera Toscana IGT - Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016Regular price $699.99
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.
