Case Basse Soldera Brunello di Montalcino 2001
Medium red. The Riserva offers layers of sublime perfumed ripe fruit that blossom on the palate with great concentration, length, finesse and purity of expression. Deceptively medium-bodied, today it comes across as elegant and somewhat restrained but the structure is there and in time it is likely to put on weight and mature into a darker set of flavors
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, -due to the altitude: 320 meters, -due to the exposure: southwest, -due to the dry, sunny climate with no fog, -due to the limpid light.
