Wine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Vintage 1999
Format 750 ml

Case Basse is an estate in the southwest area of Montalcino, where Sangiovese Grosso vines are grown to produce the famous Brunello. It is over 23 hectares in size, and is in an excellent geographical position for wine growing due to the hilly land of Eocene origin, an altitude of 320 meters at an southwestern exposure and the dry and sunny climate with no fog and limpid light.

Case Basse in the 1970’s, the place had been abandoned by share croppers for some time, and the soil was uncultivated, but even in this condition, it was a beautiful land in exceptionally charming surroundings. Gianfranco and Graziella Soldera discovered the enchantment of Case Basse, they immediately decided to devote themselves to that land, utilizing enlightened agriculture to create a Brunello of the highest quality.

Only grapes from the Case Basse Estate are used to make our wine. Natural fermentation is carried out in Slavonian oak vats. There is no temperature control and no artificial yeasts are added. Pumping over and frequent tastings are done. The University of Florence performs regular controls, also microbiological ones.

Soldera Brunello can rest for up to five years in large Slavonian oak casks, away from noise, temperature changes and odours in the new cellar, which was purpose-built to ensure optimum ageing conditions, as illustrated in the “Talking Soldera” section of our website which we invite you to visit. Brunello Soldera is matured in the bottle for some months.
