I Sodi di San Niccolò was created in the early 1980s with the goal of demonstrating that the 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 (grapes must be hand-harvested), and "San Niccolò" is an abandoned church on the Castellare property. This wine captures the enormous potential of the Sangioveto grape.
Full-bodied, with firm yet fine-grained tannins, I Sodi di San Niccolò is a rich and elegant wine that offers supple notes of wild berries, blackberry, currants, and cedar, which are elegantly complemented by hints of vanilla and leather.
Pair with tomato sauce and meaty tomato sauces, fine cuts of steak, or roasted rack of lamb.
