Castellare's I Sodi di San Niccolò is the single most overlooked high-end wine in Tuscany today

I Sodi di San Niccolò was created in the early 1980s to demonstrate that native grapes could produce a wine with all the power and grace of a Super Tuscan.  The name "I Sodi" refers to land that is difficult to till (the grapes must be hand-harvested), and "San Niccolò" is an abandoned church on the Castellare property.  This wine captures both the rich history of the vineyard as well as the Sangioveto grape's enormous potential.

Tasting Notes:
Full-bodied, with firm yet fine-grained tannins, I Sodi di San Niccolò is a rich and elegant wine that offers aromas of ripe cherries, dark berries, and currants which are complemented by notes of vanilla, leather, and cedar. On the palate, this wine is full and rich with high aging potential.

This is a Dry, Medium+ to Full bodied wine with High acidity and High tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
