Tasting Notes

Vigna del Sorbo became a Gran Selezione wine starting with the 2010 vintage, although the first vintage ever made was 1985.

The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is a dense, packed wine. It is also surprisingly, almost shockingly backward. That is probably a good thing for its long-term aging prospects. Readers hoping to get an early glimpse into the 2017 before it shuts down may have a hard time doing that, as today acids and tannin dominate. I expect the 2017 will be stellar in another 4-5 years and drink well to age 25-30 if not longer. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti gave the 2017 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask. Drink 2027-2042. 96+ Points - Antonio Galloni

Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the 'Conca d'Oro " (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape. A genuine and characteristc 'Terroir ", famous for centuries for its tradition of quality wine cultivation, thanks to a unique combination of high altitude, calcar clayschist soil, lots of light, and a fantastic micro-climate ‚– warm and dry with a marked difference in day and night-time temperatures. - Importer Note
