The 1983 is all about balance. Each component has a saying and everything is subtle toned with high class refinement. The red fruit has a sublime deep zone where complexity and sensual fruits emerge from. It’s simply awesome and a balance masterpiece. The taste is incredible with almost a dry mineral attack on the palate, every spot get a doze of this heavenly liquid. It could age graceful easily another 10 years. (99)
1983 Soldera, Case Basse Riserva, Tuscany, Italy
Compared with the 1990 it has a lesser degree of sweetness, but for me it’s a fraction better with tons of red berries and the overall balance of the wine is to die for. One of the best wines in the world.
1983 Case Basse Riserva
This wine gives me Goosebumps. I have been lucky to taste it three times the last year, and once again - I am amazed. Liquorice, herbs, rosemary, shoe pollish and leather infused with red Case Basse fruit. The taste – ahhh man…this is a lesson in what Sangiovese acidity is all about. The strength of this wine is indeed impressive. I have to add; that Case Basse once again proved to be a fantastic food wine – served with lamb, rosemary and swiss chard – I was close to tears.
