JamesSuckling.com: 95/100 A full, layered red with blueberry and blackberry character and hints of walnuts. It’s rich and juicy. Very tight style with depth and polish at the end. Still needs time to open. Try after 2022.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 98/100 'Castellare's I Sodi di San Niccolò is the single most overlooked high-end wine in Tuscany today. The 2016 picks up where the 2015 left off.

In a word: monumental !
