Panzano in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
The 2012 Vigna del Sorbo is one of the greatest wines to be tasted at Fontodi. Period. The long, sublime finish alone is enough to stop you dead in your tracks. An exceptionally beautiful and polished wine, the 2012 is incredibly finessed on the palate, with remarkable nuance for such an intense wine. Sweet rose petal, lavender, and mint add brightness to the sangiovese fruit in a stunning, vivid Chianti Classico that hits all the right notes. This is the first vintage in which Vigna del Sorbo is 100% sangiovese.
