MEMORIAL DINNER – GIANFRANCO SOLDERA

June 13 @ 18:30 - 23:00

£965

On 16th February we learned that the magician of Montalcino had died in the vineyards aged 82.

His style was inimitable, and like all great wines, was capable of achieving an airborne character of great finesse, marrying profound intensity with the utmost delicacy. Many of his greatest wines are marriages of opposites – sweetness and powder-dryness; purity and gaminess; dark aromatics illuminated with the brilliance of crystalline fruit.​​​​​​​

We shall be serving the following vintages of Case Basse:

1990 Riserva, 1993, 1998 Riserva, 1999 Riserva, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009

Please note: from 2000 onwards Soldera released his Brunello as only Riserva. In 2006 Gianfranco left the Brunello di Montalcino appellation and moved to labelling Case Basse as Toscana IGT.

The team at La Trompette are putting together a Tuscan-inspired menu based on the following courses

Canapes

Guinea hen and grains

Pasta and black truffle

Lamb and herbs

Cheese

As always, Wine Owners hosts wine events strictly at cost. We make no money and simply try not to make a loss!

All of the wines provided are coming out of members’ collections, that we shall be purchasing from them at low market. As such these wines have been stored carefully over many years, and provenance is excellent.
