THE WINE

The Toscana Red 'I Sodi di S. Niccolò' is the flagship wine of Castellare di Castellina and has been twice in the Top 100 of Wine Spectator. It represents the highest expression of Chianti Classico sangiovese flanked by a small proportion of black malvasia, another traditional variety of the area. Vinified in steel and left to mature in barrique for a period of up to 30 months, in the glass it is revealed with intensity and grace, with harmony and infinite elegance. Excellent even after many years from the harvest. Limited edition, numbered bottles.

THE COMPANY

Historical company of the Chianti Classico, Castellare di Castellina is born in today's form in 1968 thanks to the fusion of 5 different farms. A magical place where the vineyards, 33 hectares, are perfectly integrated into the environment, between forests and other crops. An area where good exposure, good water drainage, soils of limestone marc, galestro and little clay have always been well-structured, intense wines and suitable for a long aging in the bottle. The cellar has been owned by the entrepreneur Paolo Panerai since the late 70's, which immediately begins a long search path to improve all its labels. A careful census of vines, undertaken immediately after the purchase, has for example allowed to select the best species of sangiovese for the Sodi di San Niccolò, wine symbol of the company. Not only that: an experimental plot planted in the property in collaboration with the University of Milan and Florence and the San Michele all'Adige Institute allows continuous research on the best clones as well as the production of vines selected for the renewal of the vineyards. The Castellare Castellina world has grown in time, in fact in 2004, in the heart of Maremma, in partnership with Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite, was born Rocca di Frassinello. A splendid estate along the Tuscan coast where the best of Italy and France meet; a place where sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and shiraz find their home in perfect harmony, leading to the birth of wines with a certain charm, intensity and elegance. Rossi who immediately meet the tastes of an extremely heterogeneous audience and whose project is complete with the construction of the new cellar, a project projected Renzo Piano. Paul Panerai's wine adventure does not stop at Tuscany alone. It is in Sicily that are subsequently born Feudi del Pisciotto and Gurra di Mare. The first one is between Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina: about forty hectares of vineyards cultivated above all in black Avola for a cellar characterized by the historic palmento, where it was vinified already in the days of the Greeks and Romans. The second one near Porto Palo, the ancient port of Selinunte, in one of the richest areas of Sicily's history, a place that delivers warm white wines.
