1995 Soldera, Case Basse Intistieti, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

To be served after the 1990 Riserva is a tough task, but I think the 1995 did very well. The 1995 joins the camp of the more rustic Case Basse versions with smoke, herbs and spices on the nose. The wine is despite its profile extremely well defined and it’s certainly expressed when you taste it. Massive taste - almost sedative, with Italian warmth all over the palate. Still the wine had the Case Basse magic touch. The 1995 has great aging potential. (97+)
