There is a lot of mystery and mystique surrounding the current wine program spearheaded by Gianfranco Soldera. According to the latest information I have, Case Basse produced 36 hectoliters of IGT wine in 2009, only four hectoliters in 2010, 17 hectoliters in 2011, 124 hectoliters in 2012, 127 hectoliters in 2013 and 68 hectoliters in 2014. Given those radically inconsistent production numbers, I suspect we won't see this wine in retail again until the 2012 vintage is released. On the market now, you might find the 2009 100% Sangiovese if you are extremely lucky. This is by far the vintage I prefer most since this pure expression of Sangiovese lost its Brunello di Montalcino status. As an IGT, the wine is streamlined and silky. Fruit flavors of wild cherry, dried apple and aniseed are radiant and glossy. The wine packs mild volatile acidity that adds to its aromatic intensity and presentation. This vintage gives me cause to believe in the cult of Soldera.
