"The 2016 La Berta Solano leads off with a dark and perfumed display of Sangiovese, showing black cherry with peppery herbs, giving way to savory spice and dusty dried floral notes. Silky textures splash across the senses with a burst of black cherry and spice, propelled by zesty acids, then framed by a complex web of minerals and tannins, which slowly dries the senses.

"The 2016 La Berta Solano leads off with a dark and perfumed display of Sangiovese, showing black cherry with peppery herbs, giving way to savory spice and dusty dried floral notes. Silky textures splash across the senses with a burst of black cherry and spice, propelled by zesty acids, then framed by a complex web of minerals and tannins, which slowly dries the senses. The finish is long and wonderfully floral, yet clenching the palate with youthful structure, as dried red fruits and botanicals slowly fade. Its a classic expression of Sangiovese...Podere la Berta can be found at the foot of the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines, overlooking the Lamone Valley. This historic estate was one of the pioneers of the region, focused on the production of high-quality Sangiovese di Romagna, yet the modern-day story starts in only 2009, when the Poggiali family (ah, think Felsina in Chianti Classico) decided to purchase the estate and vineyards. With this purchase came the same rigorous approach to creating fine wines of terroir and longevity that has made Felsina the winery it is today. Biodynamic practices are now used throughout the vineyards, which consist of clay and sand rich soils, strewn with marine deposits, and yield wines that are benchmark examples of the region. The best is yet to come, as Romagnas story of creating world-class Sangiovese has only started; with that said, Podere la Berta is an estate to keep a firm eye on."~Eric Guido
