Fontodi

Located directly in front of the winery, at 450 meters, the southwest-facing Vigna del Sorbo vineyard is planted atop Galestro soils in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, only a few hundred meters from the town of Panzano. First produced in 1985, Vigna del Sorbo started off as a Riserva, where it was then one of the first wines promoted to a Gran Selezione in 2009 when the new designation in Chianti Classico was introduced.

A single-vineyard Gran Selezione with its own precise identity as a dense, expressive and concentrated Sangiovese that often go beyond the highest expectations of this grape in terms of concentration, complexity and age-ability.

“At an elevation of 400 metres, Vigna del Sorbo boasts Chianti Classico’s classic Galestro soil. The warm southwest-facing vineyard typically yields a powerful, intense wine in need of ageing. The 2019 demonstrates all the wild, penetrating characteristics of this site but it comes into harmony quickly, revealing its balance and precision. Wood-driven top notes of smoke and vanilla meld into pressed violets, rosemary and liquorice. Luscious red cherry and dark plum flesh are wrapped in long, layered chalky tannins. Across the palate there’s an energetic beam of unwavering acidity, giving the wine a linear feel. The finish reverberates with fennel and crushed stone.” 97 points, Decanter, March 2022

“Complex aromas of dried flowers, orange peel and white pepper, together with lots of cherries. Full-bodied, but linear and very fine in the center-palate, with a linear flow of citrusy acidity. From organically grown grapes. This will age beautifully, but it’s already impressive to taste.”
95 points, James Suckling, August 2022
