92 points "This wine is dark ruby red and has a vegetative bouquet. The taste is a dark red fruit. It has a good balance of fruit, acid and soft tannins. The winemaker blends this with Malvasia because Malvasia also has soft tannins. It is different from the Super Tuscans blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot." Best 2009-2013

95 points "The 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo saturates the palate with masses of rich, dark fruit. 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." Best 2017-2032
