Blog: I Sodi di S. Niccolò | Castellare di Castellina




According to Gentleman Magazine, Castellare di Castellina's I Sodi di S. Niccolò 2018 is the third most appreciated Italian wine in the world.

The I Sodi di San Niccolò 2018 rises to the podium of the most appreciated Italian wines in the world. The Supertuscan of Castellare di Castellina, a historic Chianti Classico winery, ranks third in the annual ranking of the Italian magazine Gentleman, which summarizes the ratings of the most important Italian wine guides and the four most important international wine critics (Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate by Rober Parker, Vinous by Antonio Galloni and James Suckling.com).

The 2018 vintage of Castellare Supertuscan, based on Sangioveto (85%) and Malvasia Nera (15%), is particularly important for the Chianti winery, as it represents the debut on the Place de Bordeaux, the prestigious network of négociants that distribute authentic icons of global enology. It is characterized by a great olfactory intensity and a dense and elegant texture with sweet tannins supported by the acidity of Sangioveto. 'The sip is particularly pleasant and crisp" - underlines the winemaker Alessandro Cellai - 'and the finish is long and very persistent. A wine that can be drunk immediately, but also suitable for a very long aging in the cellar.'

I Sodi di S. Niccolò is one of the first Italian Supertuscans (first harvest in 1977), made exclusively from native Chianti Classico vines from the two best crus of Castellare. It topped Wine Spectator's Top 100 list in 1988 (the first to do so) with the 1985 vintage, and again in 1989 with the 1986 vintage. It also won twice (2013 and 2016) the title of first Italian wine when adding the ratings of Italian and international critics. - Gerardo [TS02/23]
