il piacere del bere

The experience of a great wine, according to Gianfranco Soldera

The pleasure of drinking

The care taken in the production of Soldera wines doesn’t end until the wine is put on the table: that is the moment of truth, when the winery’s mission is accomplished.

Guaranteeing discerning clients an exclusive and memorable experience

Gianfranco Soldera studies and closely follows every detail that might contribute to creating this experience: from production, right through to when the bottle is put on the table, paying attention to the choice of bottle, cork, packing box and the most suitable transport method for protecting wine quality.

Even the glasses are specially designed.

The experience of tasting a great wine

The bottle

The beautiful 75-cl Bordeaux bottles have a deep punt, long neck and weigh twice as much as the most common bottles (750g compared to 300/350g). These structural features have been designed to store the wine in the best way possible. The very dark colour is also important for protecting the wine from light.

It is also important for the bottles to look good: Graziella Soldera wanted the shoulders to be wider than the base, to evoke the silhouette of a ballerina.

The cork

The closures Soldera uses are made of cork, 26/50 mm, very high quality and manually selected to ensure a perfect fit inside the bottle neck.

The packaging

The boxes used for packing and transporting Soldera wines are insulated with polystyrene to reduce temperature stress and are designed to keep the bottles upright, recommended for correct storage.

The glass

The “Soldera glass”, specifically designed and produced for the winery, is made with lead-free glass and the bowl is the ideal shape and size for enhancing the wine’s aromas.

Drinking suggestions

The recommended temperature for serving Soldera wine is between 17 and 18 degrees centigrade.

Another tip before tasting a bottle of Soldera wine is to uncork the wine a little before tasting and leave it in the bottle without decanting. This enables you to appreciate how it evolves over the next few hours.

A great wine goes with any great food, without limitations.

Soldera wines draw their uniqueness from the history they are an integral part of, from the vine rows right through to the bottle.

Exceptional raw materials, a favourable environment and care and attention are the ingredients for an extraordinary wine that can be paired with any food made along the same lines and in an equally respectful way.
