Plush, deep and explosive, the 2015 possesses magnificent depth. The 15% Malvasia Nera gives tannic backbone and energy to balance the wine's natural richness. Sweet red cherry, cedar, smoke, tobacco and licorice build in a racy, flamboyant Sodi that hits all the right notes. In a word: stunning! -- Antonio Galloni

The palate is very pure and focused, the driven acidity providing a welcome counterpoint to the layers of rich, dark fruit. A blend of 85 per cent sangioveto and 15 per cent malvasia nera. Drink in 2022.

Niccolò is another beautiful new release from Castellare di Castellina. This is a seamlessly executed expression of Sangioveto (an antique name for Sangiovese) with a smaller part Malvasia Nera from a sunny vintage that produced generous and exuberant fruit across the board. White pepper, spice, wild rose and toasted anise seed appear on the close. The finish is soft and yielding with sweet tannins. Present this gorgeous red alongside a roasted pheasant. - Monica Larner

Not flashy, yet broad and deep, this red is anchored by a beam of black cherry at center stage, with accents of earth, leather, iron and tobacco. Muscular on the back end, yet remains long, if a bit dry. Sangioveto and...   Not flashy, yet broad and deep, this red is anchored by a beam of black cherry at center stage, with accents of earth, leather, iron and tobacco. Muscular on the back end, yet remains long, if a bit dry. Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera. Best from 2022 through 2033. 2,500 cases made, 800 cases imported. — BS
