I Sodi di San Niccolò Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2005

🏅 Rating 90+/100 (4,05⭐)

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.

Bottle №3049/22132

Ser Lapo Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2006

Lovely full bodied Chianti Classico Riserva still tannic on the palate and could age at least another 5 years. Very indicative of the region of Castellina in Chianti with the addition of 10% Merlot for smoothness and body. Unfortunately my last bottle of the 2008 vintage. Drinking in May, 2020. — a year ago
