|I did not know when I tasted this stunning 2006 Soldera Brunello recently that it might be the last sip of a newly released Soldera wine that I would taste for many years.|
Reacting to the terrible news out of Montalcino today, I went through several stages of emotion, none of them pleasant. If what is being reported is true, and has happened, it is just an incredible loss. Truly terrible. What is kind of helping me cope, sort of, is remembering what I admire so much about the Soldera wines that I've tried. I'd like to focus on that for now.
I hope that even with this new tragedy there may be within it something small that might be treasured.
