The 2007 is very much a product of the year. Warm open and resonant the 2007 is one of the bigger wines made at Castellare over the last three decades. There is an immediacy that is quite appealing but the wine's bombastic personality needs some time to settle down. Although delicious today the 2007 should also age quite well based on its sheer opulence. It is best cellared for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. --- Antonio Galloni

Power and grace is summed up in the 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo - Mostly Sangioveto (Clone of Sangiovese) with Malvasia Nera. Inky and saturated black and blue hue indicates a full bodied Super Tuscan. Traditional notes... Power and grace is summed up in the 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo - Mostly Sangioveto (Clone of Sangiovese) with Malvasia Nera. Inky and saturated black and blue hue indicates a full bodied Super Tuscan. Traditional notes of garrigue morello cherry and black truffle create a heady bouquet. Quite mouth-coating for a Sangiovese based wine with plenty of glycerol fruit and wood tannins throughout. Now with a few years of bottle age this wine is displaying a dried fruit spectrum of black cherry and black plum with hints of licorice and olives. Another layer of roasted coffee and caramel picks up on the back end with fine grained tannins reminiscent of a left bank Bordeaux with a few years of cellar age. The finish is full and expansive with a multiple minute finish. A baby at this juncture but with the structure to age another 4 to 7 years. I highly suggest decanting for 90 minutes if to be consumed for the immediate. This wine only gets better with ample aeration.
