My father Fabrizio Bindocci and I were very glad to have be included in the list of the Brunello di Montalcino that Alder Yarrow recommends to buy for the 2008 vintage.
Brunello di Montalcino is the number 6 of wines he would like to buy.
“6. One or two Brunellos, because Ruth would want me to and because when
aged well, they are so fantastic. However, a massive hailstorm hit
Montalcino in the fall of 2008, and many producers lost 20-40% of their
crops. Hopefully, skilled producers were able to recover, though prices
will no doubt be up. If I’m doing particularly well when they’re
released in 2012 or 2013, I’d love to own a couple of bottles of Soldera
Brunello, but more likely I’d be buying folks like Il Poggione, Poggio
Antico, Col d’Orcia, Poggio di Sotto, etc”.
Thanks you Mr. Yarrow for the recommendation! I am a fan of your blog.
Like other producers, we have sustained some damage in 2008 and we wrote about it at the time that it happened. But we also believe that we will produce a great Brunello for the 2008 harvest because of the size of our estate and the many different vineyards and growing sites from which we source our estate-grown fruit. Soon we will be taste the 2008 and we will have more informations for you!
In the meantime, congratulations to you for your family and thanks you for the kind mention.
