Black fruit, smoke, tar and incense are some of the many notes that flow from a structured, tense frame. The 2008 will test the readers’ patience, but it has the stuffing and pedigree to develop into a splendid wine. This is a fabulous showing, especially within the context of the vintage. Today, the 2008 looks to be a great wine in the making. I Sodi di San Niccolo is 85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera aged in French oak barrels, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. 95+ - Antonio Galloni

Wonderful silky texture to this red with a beautiful currant and berry character as well. Full body, with caressing mouthfeel. A blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Malvasia Nera. Better after 2013.

This is a historic wine that consistently delivers an elegant interpretation of Tuscan Sangiovese (blended with 15% Malvasia Nera). It opens with bright pulses of cherry and raspberry, plus a dark tone of leather. The palate is silky, fresh and long-lasting.

Blueberry, dark plum, coffee and tobacco on the nose, with pepper and vanilla nuances emerging with aeration. Moderately dense and sweet, showing modest fat but good intensity to its aromatic herb and blueberry flavor. A tad undifferentiated today, with the herb and pepper elements carrying through to the firm finish. Will this blossom in bottle? Certainly this is a very good wine for the leanish 2008 vintage; the malvasia nera seems to be front and center this year. 90+
