The 2006 I Sodi di San Niccolò is shaping up to be both one of the wines of the vintage and one of the great all-time versions of this Tuscan thoroughbred. Rich, explosive and totally compelling, the 2006 boasts superb intensity and dazzling overall balance. The 2006 is every bit as promising as it was when it was first released about two years ago.
The 1999 I Sodi di San Niccolò is a big, big wine. It boasts tremendous power, richness and depth. This is a vintage that harnesses the opulence of a warm year with the brighter acidity of a cooler vintage, a combination that is highly appealing. The dark red fruit remains quite vibrant and primary throughout. This is a great, great showing from Castellare
