After a long period of ageing, we are pleased to present the new 2009 vintage of the Toscana Sangiovese 100% Soldera, the unique and typical expression of the special terroir of the winery, obtained from grapes grown in our vineyards, fermented naturally with native yeasts, without pressing or filtration and without additives except for sulphites. Thanks to a QR Code printed on the back label, every bottle of the 2009 vintage also comes with a tech sheet full of information about the history of the wine, a section on the special Soldera bottle has been added this year to focus on the importance of every detail in order to protect the quality of the wine and to guarantee an excellent tasting experience. Also the cork, insulated case, transport, storage, serving temperature and glass play an important role. The scientific report drawn up by Professor Massimo Vincenzini (GESAAF Department of Florence University) and Professor Luigi Odello (International Academy of Sensory Analysis) is the result of studies currently being carried out at Case Basse (among them, one on DNA traceability by Dr Rita Vignani), whose main facts are reported in brief.
More in depth...
The presentation of the 2007 and 2008 Soldera vintages on the market is good news for the continuity of the story of Case Basse.
After having suspended sales from December 2012, Case Basse is starting again deliveries selling the TOSCANA IGT 2006 SOLDERA 100% SANGIOVESE.
To distinguish their high quality production, Gianfranco and Graziella Soldera wanted very elegant labels. The label for the Sangiovese Soldera, which stands out for the important symbol of a dolphin, sacred to the God Dionysus, was created by the famous contemporary painter, Piero Leddi. For wines that age for less time in the barrel and are produced only in certain vintages, the image of Pegasus was chosen. On the label for the Intistieti, the winged horse was interpreted not only by Leddi but also other illustrious artists: Bodini, Sughi and Trubbiani.
