The 2013 I Sodi di S. Niccolò is 85% Sangioveto (a more antique name for Sangiovese) and 15% Malvasia Nera from a single vineyard. This wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance and shows ruby, garnet and purple highlights. The bouquet is powerful but seamless at the same time with smooth transitions between dark cherry, spice, tobacco and moist clay. In the mouth, this wine shows dense extraction, but it never feels too weighed down by that mass. Instead, the freshness of the fruit and the natural acidity give the wine a bright and buoyant personality. Aged in barrique for 30 months, this is a delightful Tuscan red.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is really serious with dense and deep fruit, citrusy acidity and a fantastic mouthfeel. Medium to full body, linear and racy. Made from a blend of sangioveto and malvasia nera. Drink now.
James Suckling
This is elegant and supple in the beginning, gaining structure and power as the cherry, berry, tobacco and leather flavors play out against a firm line of tannins. Fine length. Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. Best from 2019 through 2029. 2,100 cases made.  –BS

Domini Castellare di Castellina

Domini Castellare di Castellina

Selected for its proven reputation and endless potential, Paolo Panerai purchased the Castellare di Castellina in the late 1970s. Under his guidance and constant attention, the winery grew into one of Tuscany’s most innovative producers. Their flagship wine, I Sodi di San Niccolò, pushes the limits, proving that native grapes can produce a product with just as much power and grace. The wine captures the unimaginable greatness of the Sangioveto (Sangiovese) grape. Along with their award winning wines, the Castellare di Castellina’s property is absolutely beautiful. A trip to the vineyard will impress any nature-lover. You can observe the natural environment that surrounds this wonderful winery within their wildlife refuge. The estate’s appreciation of nature is even further exhibited with a different bird representing each vintage on their labels. ...

Grapes

Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape (under its many clonal guises) and Tuscany’s most famous as it is the backbone to many of their greatest appellations including Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many Super Tuscans. It is thought to be of ancient origin (its name means “Blood of Jove”) and is thought to be part Tuscan, part southern Italian. Stylisically, it can range from bright ruby red to deep red, brown and tends to offer notes of sour cherries, plums and spicy leather notes paired with bright acidity and firm tannins. It produces a more rustic wine in Corsica under its clone, Nielluccio. While small quantities are produced in areas of the New World, they tend to not hit the heights of those in Italy. ...
There are many types of Malvasia and most produce deeply coloured whites which can be dryish and full-bodied to richly sweet and sometimes even fortified, such as those examples from Madeira. Malvasia Nera or Red Malvasia is a red grape version and is often blended with other grapes such as Negroamaro in south Italy and Sangiovese in Tuscany, adding both colour and fragrance. However since the introduction of Cabernet Sauvignon in more Tuscan blends, Malvasia Nera has lost popularity and its future remains uncertain. In Piedmont, it does produce its own varietal wines – both dry and sweet – though hectares planted remain minimal. ...

Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most famous of all Italian wine regions for not only does one have the renowned vineyards of Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino where Sangiovese reigns in all its forms, but it is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the cult wine style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest wines of the country. Some of the greatest bottles include Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia and Masseto. In addition to being the most famous, it is also one of the most spread out with vineyards as far north as Florence and as far southeast as the Umbrian border and as far southwest as Bolgheri and the Maremma on the Mediterranean sea. Though it is most famous for its reds, it also produces delicious whites including Vernaccia from San Gimignano and Vermentino from its vineyards closer to the sea. ...
