Wow, absolute delight. High acidity, a touch volatile which is house style. Burgundian, sweet Brunello nose, amazingly long finish and deeply complex. Still very young, slow o for 3 hours then decanted one hour. Best Sangiovese there is. Brunello Riserva

Legendary producer, but I was somewhat underwhelmed. Fruit didn't come through on the nose even after decanting. Might have been a bit of a weak bottle, but if not, I expected more.

Tight and tart at first but finally gave us something after a couple hours.

2001 Soldera Brunello. Date night at Tosc. This had been standing up since lunch last week. Thought this bottle would be as good as lunch, it wasn’t. Dry, short, austere, green. Pleasant, but not “voluptuous” as K had expected.

Superb. Smooth and Moshe altering. Well balanced with a lighter nose - less dark fruit than a typical brunello- and slightly less muscular. It is an elegant wine drinking beautifully

A beautiful wine - Less muscular than a typical brunello - very elegant. Still some nice Tannins - very smooth. A joy to drink. Bravo.

Another great vintage for Soldera. Dried cherry, leather, licorice spice & floral notes of rose petal & violets. This is fully mature with perfect acidity drinking beautifully.
