Fontodi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna Del Sorbo 2015
Although Fontodi is best known for their 100% Sangiovese Flaccianello – one of Italy’s most revered and coveted wines over the years it is the estate’s Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo that has built the more distinguished track record. Complete verticals of both wines over the last two years confirmed what has long been an intuition; Vigna del Sorbo is a more consistent performer than Flaccianello, ages better and is a much more finessed, pedigreed wine.
