Overview

The masterpiece of Castellare. Twice named in the Wine Spectator Top 100, again and again three glasses and five bunches, pride of our Farm to have shown the grandeur of Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera, reaching the fifth place in the world. Nowadays the Tuscan wine, made from native vines, with the highest score. The wine is made from a blend of 80-85% Sangiovetto and balanced with Malvasia Nera. The name "I Sodi" refers to land that is difficult to till (grapes must be hand-harvested), and "San Niccolo" is an abandoned church on the Castellare property. The Sangiovetto and Malvasia Nera vines are between 25-30 years old.
