Substance and elegance


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.

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.

In 2013, with the aim of focussing on the Soldera registered trademark, the winery started to label the 2006 vintage as Toscana Sangiovese IGT “100% Sangiovese dall’Az.Agr.Case Basse”.

In 1982 the first Brunello of the Soldera winery from the 1977 vintage was sold, the label, designed by Piero Leddi, was admired all over the world for its elegance and distinctiveness. The dolphin, chosen for its link to the God Dionysus, represents the letter S of the Soldera brand.

The unusual weather trend in 2005 led to a barrel maturing after about three years. The lower ageing time meant that the wine was labelled with a different name and the symbol of the winged horse was used, as had occurred in certain previous vintages.
