Winemaker Notes

Made from 85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera. After a maceration period of 18-25 days, the wine was transferred to new barriques and aged for 18 months. "I Sodi" refers to land that is difficult to till and must be harvested by hand, "di San Niccolo" refers to an abandoned church on the Castellare property. This wine was created with the goal of demonstrating that the native grapes of the region could produce a wine of the highest international standards without the aid of varietals outside of the Chianti tradition. The goal has been achieved as I Sodi is consistently ranked in the top 100 wines internationally.

"Wonderful aromas of berries, roses and raspberries. Medium-bodied, with tight and silky tannins and a long, long finish. A very fine wine..."--Wine Spectator, October 31, 2002

Castellare Winery Image

The Castellare estate is one of the best examples of tradition in the area. The winery’s owner, Paolo Panerai, has closely studied the world’s best wineries and applied this understanding and experience to viticulture in Italy. The Castellare property, located in Tuscany’s Castellina in Chianti, has become a virtual refuge for wildlife, including many of the birds pictured on their labels. With each vintage, the Castellare label shows a different bird, symbolizing the estate’s commitment to environmentally sound cultivation. The birds selected for the labels are among the rarest creatures in Chianti, and represent birds threatened by extinction, mostly due to synthetic chemical products and hunting, both of which are forbidden on this property. In the town of Castellina, one of Chianti’s best locales, Castellare’s vineyards are at 1200 feet elevation – only a few Chianti Classico vineyards are higher. The vineyards of this 46-acre property are found in a natural amphitheater in the heart of the Classico region. At Castellare, the yield-per-acre is very low, far lower than the maximum level allowed by Chianti Classico DOCG rules, which enhances the concentration of aromas and flavors.
