Soldera's 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva has been utterly gorgeous on the many times I have tasted it. Expressive, floral and impeccably perfumed, the 2006 Riserva is surprisingly mid-weight and gracious in this vintage. Layers of sweet fruit with Burgundian overtones emerge as the wine gains depth and volume in the glass. Today, the 2006 is a delicate Brunello from Soldera rather than a powerhouse, but then again, these wines have a way of putting on weight in the bottle. I can't wait to see how the 2006 develops over the coming years. Soldera fans know that there is sometimes more than one bottling of the Riserva. This is Lot F86, which is the Lot imported into the US. I also tasted E85, which is a bit firmer, but within the context of Soldera wines, these two bottlings are quite similar.

A good dose of air coaxes out the maturing aromas and flavors of sandalwood, leather, underbrush, sweet cherry and mineral. This intriguing red displays lightness and elegance without sacrificing structure or intensity. Features a savory finish.

About This Producer


Located in the southwest region of Montalcino, Case Basse is a tiny estate whose dedicated owners, Gianfranco and Graziella Soldera, create Brunellos of exacting and exceptional quality. Many consider these wines the epitome of premier Brunello, as they are powerful, rustic and age-worthy. Soldera seamlessly links traditional vineyard cultivation with natural style winemaking. The vines are manually pruned and cultivated, and the wine is aged in traditional large oak barrels from Slavonia. Add to this a deft and intuitive application of progressive oenological techniques and the result is impressive wines of superlative substance and elegance.
