Previously rated on Delectable but Delectable deleted... again they are acting bizarre...deleted not only many wine ratings but my original bio!
This is a VERY nice wine (gasp, it's that "word"...!), a very drinkable vino, great value for full flavor, balance, and flavor, balance and flavor balance. 2017 vintage. Previous rating on this wine was simply that this is an excellent Tuscan blend...still true...that does not mean equal to a a top notch Castellare or Antonori, but full flavored with perfect tannin, medium body & deep berry...very nice on the palate. Enough. — 6 months ago

Tawny rim. First nose is intense balsamic and herbal. Prunes, roasted coffee beans. Dried rose. Dark chocolate. Oak reveals with aeration. Lacked the primary fruit aromas, very much into tertiary territory, which made me think this wine is more advanced than it should be at this age. We could blame challenging vintage for that.
I Sodi di San Niccolò is among prestige Super Tuscans. Blend of 85% Sangioveto, and 15% Malvasia Nera. Fermented in steel, malo in concrete vats and matured in 50% new French oak barriques for 24-30 months. Grapes come from organically managed single vineyard with carefully selected clones particularly for the best performance in this terroir. Low yields.
Each year label features the image of one out of many bird species from Chianti region as a tribute to the enviroment.
