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.
I Sodi di San Niccoló 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-- without the use of international varietals. "I Sodi" refers to land that is difficult to till (grapes must be hand-harvested), and "San Niccoló" is an abandoned church on the Castellare property.
Pairs well with cold cuts and meat rich in flavour, cheeses with a strong and aromatic taste, in particular, Pecorino Toscano and Parmigiano.
