Winemaker Notes

The vineyards have south-west exposure with 30 years old vines. Vigna del Sorbo is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

James Suckling
Lots of blueberry and vanilla character in this rich and balanced Chianti Classico. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Try it in 2012 to let it come together more in the bottle. This single vineyard Chianti Classico Riserva from Fontodi is always a killer.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is beautiful in this vintage. It shows gorgeous mid-palate depth and pliancy, with wonderful richness in its sweet dark fruit, smoke, licorice and grilled herbs. The 10% Cabernet Sauvignon works particularly well in this vintage, as it seems to give the wine a measure of depth and delineation that is less obvious in the Flaccianello. Higher toned floral notes add lift on the finish. The Vigna del Sorbo is a touch restrained in 2008, as are most wines, yet it shows fabulous balance and tons of personality. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.

Wine Spectator
Very polished, with sweet spices accenting the cherry and black currant notes. Turns firm and lean, with dry tannins taking over on the finish. Rich and dense, so be patient. Best from 2013 through 2020. 1,600 cases made.
