    Winemaker's Notes:

    Full-bodied, with firm yet fine-grained tannins, I Sodi di San Niccolò is an austere, rich and elegant wine that offers supple notes of wild berries, blackberry, currants and cedar, which are elegantly complemented by hints of vanilla and leather.

    Pair with tomato sauce and meaty pastas, fine cuts of steak or roast rack of lamb.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo saturates the palate with masses of rich, dark fruit. The 2007 is very much a product of the year. Warm, open and resonant, the 2007 is one of the bigger wines made at Castellare over the last three decades. There is an immediacy that is quite appealing, but the wine's bombastic personality needs some time to settle down. Although delicious today, the 2007 should also age quite well based on its sheer opulence. It is best cellared for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032.

    Medium ruby-red. Deep, complex aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, roasted herbs and mint. Fat and lush but sappy and delineated, with pliant, creamy ripe red fruit flavors accented by aromatic herbs. Finishes with big, broad, ripe tannins and a note of sweet pipe tobacco. Obviously the product of a hot vintage, but this doesn't come across as heavy or phenolically unripe. A very luscious style of Sodi: those who like big, creamy wines will probably rate this even higher.

    Beautiful aromas of Christmas cake and dark fruits. Full body, with velvety tannins and dark chocolate and fruits as well. Chewy finish. Give a year or two to open and soften. A classic Tuscan red. Made from Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera.

    I Sodi di San Niccolo is a gorgeous and opulent blend of 85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera with amazing intensity and beautifully crafted aromas of black fruit, rum cake, leather, spice and moist tobacco. It's very smooth and silky, with long-lasting berry flavors on the close.

    This cuts a broad swath across the palate, with dense plum, black cherry and spice flavors. Chunky in profile, with dusty tannins and a salty licorice finish. Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2013 through 2022.
