James Suckling sdays, ‘This is always one of the top Chianti Classicos." And
Wine Spectator et al writes, this is "a thick, powerful and modern style, with cherry and plum flavors and dense tannins. Licorice, leather and spice flavors add complexity while the tannins lend grip on the long, juicy finish. Best from 2016 through 2024."
Italian Wine Merchant opins, ‘Exquisitely balanced, unbelievably textured, finely made and long-aging, the Vigna del Sorbo takes traditional Chianti and makes it monumental. The Vigna del Sorbo is a massive yet elegant wine, layered, complex, and soaring--it's the Chianti for wine-lovers who enjoy big wines, and its combination of piquant acidity, velvety tannins, juicy cherries and berries, striking minerality, seductive smoke and leather, and beguiling wildflowers gives Chianti Classico Gran Selezione a bold face. The child of a warm vintage, the ’11 Vigna del Sorbo is simply stunning--a beautifully precise effort that shows approachability matched with age-worthy structure.
Indeed, no further ink needs to be spilt on the quality of Fontodi Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo 2011 (1x75cl)
