I Sodi di S. Niccolò · IGT 2018


Castellare di Castellina, Tuscany
´I Sodi di S. Niccolò´ · IGT 2018, Castellare di Castellina, Tuscany
I Sodi di San Niccolo - the flagship of Castellare di Castellina - comes from the vineyard around the church of San Niccolo: this almost pure Sangioveto (Sangiovese) is complemented with Malvasia Nera, both from vines almost 30 years old. The color is an intense ruby red with garnet highlights. The aroma is fruity and reminiscent of wild berries, underlined by spices and some vanilla. This wine reached the top 100 of Wine Specator magazine several times and also received the coveted award of 3 glasses in the wine guide Gambero Rosso.

Barren soils are a basic requirement for high quality wines. Therefore, the sites where the vine has to fight for water and food are the most sought-after for Tuscan winemakers. The sites called 'i sodi' are in complete contrast to the 'campi', the fields. On the 'sodi' grow the most dense and refined wines. - Gerardo [TS11/19]

"The 2018 I Sodi di San Niccolò is the most elegant Sodi I have ever tasted, and I have tasted them all. Sodi can be quite bruiser in its youth, as the tannins are often imposing, but the 2018 is impressive because there is more than enough fruit to balance things out. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and gravel build in a Sodi endowed with mind-blowing purity and exceptional finesse. Superb!" - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)


  Gerardo's Notes: I Sodi di S. Niccolò is the Grand Cru of Castellare di Castellina, one of the first historic Supertuscans made exclusively from native grape varieties: 85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera. The name derives from the word used by Tuscan farmers to refer to those soils that had to be worked by hand because they were too hard (sodi) or too steep to allow the use of oxen. San Niccolò, on the other hand, is the name of the 14th century church located on the Castellare property, around which are some of the best vineyards. On the label, the iconic little bird that has always appeared on Castellare's red wines symbolizes the daily commitment to sustainable viticulture that the company has shown for over 40 years.
