93 points "The wines of the 1999 vintage are shaping up as the finest Gianfranco Soldera has produced at his Case Basse estate since the legendary 1983 Riserva, for me the greatest Brunello di Montalcino ever made. While waiting for the release of the 1999 Riserva Intistieti next year, those looking for superb and stylish wine from this appellation will find plenty of satisfaction in the 1998 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, exceptionally penetrating and expansive on the nose and loaded with flavors of wild cherry and plum fruit, Mediterranean brush, liquorice, and wild fennel. Drink: 2005-2018 (WA-93)" Best 2005-2018
