“Il y a plus de philosophie dans une bouteille de vin que dans tous les livres”
A list of Soldera wines by vintage and labels
Soldera Case Basse® boasts a very small and exclusive production, which is the result of passionate work aimed at creating a great wine through completely natural vinegrowing and winemaking processes.
The result is winemaking excellence, which only those who have tasted this wine can confirm: it is an exclusive experience, for the benefit of just a few, because only a small amount of wine is sold after such a rigorous selection process.
The vineyards were planted at Case Basse between 1972 and1973. The first harvest was in 1975 and, for a few years, the winery also bottled a lesser-aged Sangiovese than Brunello.
Here below is a list of wines and the relative Soldera labels through the years.
Labels by artists to honour an exclusive wine
Through the years, Gianfranco and Graziella Soldera have approached internationally-famous artists to create labels that reflect the elegance, balance and classic style of the wines they illustrate.
Toscana 100% Sangiovese Soldera
Since 2013 (with the 2006 wine) the winery has labelled its products as Toscana IGT/IGP Soldera 100% Sangiovese dall’Azienda Agricola Case Basse®.
Brunello di Montalcino Soldera
In 1982 the first Brunello Soldera was sold (the 1977 vintage).
Brunello was produced until 2006, in some years there was also a “Riserva”.
100% Sangiovese IGT
The unusual weather trend in 2005 saw a barrel of wine mature after about three years. This wine was labelled “Pegasos”, a name inspired by the symbol of the winged horse that had already appeared on labels of lesser-aged Soldera wines in previous vintages.
Intistieti is a wine produced between 1985 and 1992, only with grapes from the winery (100% Sangiovese) and according to the usual processes, but with shorter barrel ageing. On the Intistieti label, the winged horse was designed by Piero Leddi, as well as other artists: Bodini, Sughi and Trubbiani.
Rosso di Montalcino Soldera
A red wine made from grapes grown in the Brunello Soldera vineyards
It was the first wine produced at Soldera Case Basse, from 1975 to 1979.
