I agree. I've never had the privilege of tasting one of Soldera's wines but by all reliable accounts they are masterpieces of Brunello in a similar way that DRC's wines are masterpieces of Vosne-Romanée.
Therefore this is an act of vandalism of gigantic proportions similar in kind to the blowing up of ancient Buddhist statues by the Taliban.
Mafia action or jealous neighbours? Whichever it is, they don't even have the Taliban's excuse of blind religious fanaticism.
Soldera is not a young man and I hope that he can bounce back.
