      “Vigna del Sorbo” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2011 (BIO) · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Vigna del Sorbo 2011 is already pleasing alone with its full, powerful ruby red. With a clear, intense fruitiness, to which herbaceous notes are added, it captures the nose before the wide, consistent taste and the straight, flawless finish begin. An excellent harmony between structure and elegance and already one of the biggest Gran Selezione of the new 2011 vintage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep dark, rich ruby with violet shimmer. Intense and dense nose, smells of blackberries, tobacco and sandalwood, multi-layered. Very dense and substantial on the palate, shows ripe fruit, then starts with dense tannin with supple core through, as if formed from a strand, very long aftertaste."Falstaff

      "This is so layered and complex with dark chocolate, mineral, wet stone and black cherry character. So much fruit and polished tannins in this wine yet tight and composed. It needs another three to four years to completely open and show what great quality it truly has."James Suckling

      "Black stone fruits, smoke, tobacco, incense and sweet spices jump from the glass in the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo. The 2011 is going to need a few years for the baby fat to melt away. Today the flavors are ripe, dark and resonant, while the tannins are quite silky, but the best is yet to come. Even with all of its richness, the 2011 clocks in with acidity above 6%, which is virtually unheard of for a wine with this much dry extract, but, then again, we are talking about Sangiovese."Antonio Galloni

      “Vigna del Sorbo” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2014 (BIO) · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      The bouquet of red fruits, violets and graphite forms a synthesis of rare refinement. In the dense and rich, but very fine taste, an extremely interesting tannin component emerges, which, however, does not touch anywhere. A Riserva that shows a high level of professionalism and is also organically grown. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very clear and fine, intense and rich in finesse, highly elegant and powerful, with grandiose fullness. Rich, wiry and extract-rich, deep Sangiovese." Weinwisser

      "An elegant version, with a keen edge of tannins underlining the pure cherry, blackberry, leather and earth flavors. Turns more polished with air, finishing up with a hint of bitter almond." Wine Spectator

      "I tasted the 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo the day before it was to be bottled. The time the wine spent in barrique was shortened slightly to compensate for the delicate quality of fruit produced in this cool vintage. This 2014 edition is aged in barrel for 20 months, compared to 24 months for a warmer vintage such as 2012. The wine’s time in botte grande was extended to four months (instead of the usual one month usually employed) to afford more time for complete integration. The age of the Vigna del Sorbo vines is old enough to protect the plants from extreme temperatures. The vines are comfortably in their production prime. The fruit is balanced and bright with lively cherry and raspberry flavors followed by ethereal tones of crushed mineral, blue flower and balsam herb. Although the wine sports less overall volume, the finish is extremely polished and fine. It should flesh out further over the next year." Robert Parker

      "Exotic spice, pipe tobacco, dark-skinned berry, forest floor and a whiff of French oak all come together on this structured red. The elegant, full-bodied palate evokes Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and white pepper while vibrant acidity and firm, fine-grained tannins provide balance. It's still young, with great energy and will benefit from more time in the bottle." Wine Enthusiast

      "A powerful, structured wine, the 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo won't be ready to drink for a number of years, much less be at its best. In recent years, the Sorbo has been much more forward, but the 2014 is decidedly austere and ungiving. Graphite, smoke, black cherry, plum and licorice notes infuse the dark, mysterious finish." Antonio Galloni

      "Solely owned by Fontodi, Vigna del Sorbo is a 40-year-old parcel within their Panzano property. Until 2012 it included a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, but is now made entirely from Sangiovese. It is aged in equal percentages of new and used barriques. While the 2014 needs time to come around, it won't be the longest-lived vintage, but it's an excellent wine with good cellaring potential. It's smoky and quietly alluring, with hints of balsam, truffle and baking spice. Layered without being lush, it is also sternly tannic." Decanter
