Vinous: 97 Points

The 2018 I Sodi di San Niccolò is the most elegant Sodi I have ever tasted and I have tasted them all. Sodi can be quite the bruiser in its youth as the tannin

James Suckling: 95 Points

22 Jul 2022 ? A vibrant balanced and fresh red with raspberries pomegranates cherry stones and spice box on the nose. Sleek tight tannins. Focused with a very fine structure and wound-up energy. Sangiovese and malvasia nera. Try after 2023.

Wine Spectator: 94 Points

This is marked by new oak initially then the plum and cherry flavors shine through. Vibrant with leather and earth elements joining in before the oak spice and tannins frame the finish. Fresh and complex with a lot going on?just needs time. Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera. Best from 2024 through 2042. 2500 cases made 800 cases imported.

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

This celebrated Tuscan red is a blend of mostly Sangioveto (also known as Sangiovese) with a smaller part of Malvasia Nera. The Castellare di Castellina 2018 I Sodi di S. Niccolò shows the elegance and grace of these native grapes with aromas of red and purple fruit cherry wild rose and gardening soil. However there is also a strong oak element that adds spice and toast to the bouquet and textural weight to the wine's generous build.
