Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: "A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera, I Sodi di San Niccolò '17 opens on vibrant aromas, with a lush fruitiness and spicy whiffs introducing a palate of lovely tannic texture and great expressive pleasantness. (2022)"

96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 I Sodi di San Niccolò is supple, radiant and inviting, almost uncharacteristically so for a young vintage of this typically potent, brooding wine. That makes the 2017 an ideal vintage for readers who want to explore I Sodi, one of the most under the radar wines in all of Italy. Soft contours envelop a core of red berry fruit, dried flowers, licorice, mint and tobacco. Drink: 2025-2047. (Sep 2021)"

96 points Wine Spectator: "[$100 list] Toasty oak gives way to bright cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors in this sleek, vibrant red, with wild herb, tobacco and mineral notes adding complexity. Supple, yet there's a firm matrix of refined tannins and the finish is defined by lively acidity and finesse. Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera. Best from 2024 through 2045. (10/31/21)"

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries, cloves, tobacco, walnuts and chocolate. It’s full-bodied with firm, tightly-knit tannins. Structured and tight on the palate with bright acidity. Layered and flavorful with a long finish. A blend of 85% sangiovese and 15% malvasia nera. Try in 2023. (10/5/21)"
