Gianfranco and Graziella Soldera are guided by a philosophy of respect for the laws of nature, allowing it to express all its potential. On their estate southwest of Montalcino, they cultivate more than 23 hectares of the Sangiovese Grosso vine, which is used for their Brunello di Montalcino.
Gianfranco and Graziella believe that, to obtain a fine product, you need to draw on past experience, fully understanding it, in order to verify and innovate it with modern experimental techniques. This is why the wines produced on the Case Basse estate are the result of research and study. Backed by faculties of agriculture in various universities and the department of microbiology in Florence, Casa Soldera wines are supported by an electronic control unit that checks the weather all year round and by careful study of the entire vinification stage, allowing control and analysis of the wine from the vine to the glass.
They do all this while respecting traditional cultivating techniques, with weed killer-free fertilising, a structure and organisation of the vines that allow for manual processing, dual pruning, thinning of the grapes and limited defoliation in the autumn that helps the fruit to ripen properly.
