Toscana IGT 100% Sangiovese dall’Azienda Agricola Soldera Case Basse®

Vintage 2010

In December 2012 our winery was the victim of an act of vandalism: the valves of 10 barrels containing wine destined to become Brunello di Montalcino were opened.
Of the 6 vintages affected (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), the 2010 suffered the most damage and only about 450 litres were left.
I and my family wanted the 2010 to be associated with a very strong message that makes an impact: we strongly wished to turn a sad and painful episode into a gesture of hope and help towards those less fortunate than us.
To this end, the 450 litres were only bottled in formats of 3, 5, 6, 9, 12 and 15 litres, to create 4 super-exclusive series of 50 litres each and we are organising charity auctions for associations which help children who are ill, without access to education or living in poverty. This is the means we have chosen to convey the message close to our hearts: this is the only way that the 450 litres saved from the 2010 vintage will go back to being worth more than what we lost.
