The grapes for this wine are grown in the Vigna del Sorbo vineyard. Planted in 1981, the vineyard is situated at an altitude of 400 m asl, facing south/south-west. Its powerful structure supports the intense, smoky, savoury fruit.
THE WINE ADVOCATE (Robert Parker) Rating: 96+ points - Drink Date: 2020 - 2045 - "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo (100% Sangiovese) is a wine that inspires a deep, deep breath into your glass. There's so much to take in and admire. So where to start? First, the wine shows a beautiful appearance that is thick and dark but allows for just enough ambient light to make it shine with ruby rays from deep inside. Then you have the bouquet that presents a solid wall of interwoven and ultimately beautifully balanced aromas. There is dark fruit, tobacco, leather, spice and polished river stone. Lastly, the mouthfeel reveals a similar level of extreme flavour equilibrium with very fine but still very young tannins. That mid-weight structure, matched to the wine's natural acidity, is a major guarantee of longevity. Bottle production in this vintage is 30,000 units strong."
