2011 Chianti Classico "Vigna del Sorbo" Gran Selezione DOCG,
Azienda Agricola Fontodi

The Vigna del Sorbo has had a moving story behind it : until the 2009 vintage it was classified as Chianti Classico Riserva and only since the 2010 vintage is the wine Vigna del Sorbo classified as a Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. However until 2011 it was produced from 90 per cent Sangiovese and 10 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. And since the 2012 vintage only Sangiovese grapes have been used for the Vigna del Sorbo. Today, Fontodi has a total of three wines from 100 per cent Sangiovese in its range - in addition to the Vigna del Sorbo, the super star Flaccianello and of course the Evergreen, the Chianti Classico. The grapes for the Vigna del Sorbo come from a single vineyard with a south-western orientation that have exceeded the proud age of 40 years. After harvesting the grapes by hand, they undergo a three-week fermentation process in temperature-controlled steel tanks. Then the wine is allowed to rest and mature for 24 months in new and used Troncais and Allier barrels. Ruby red in the glass and earthy in the nose, then forest fruit aromas in the mouth make you want more and more from the Vigna del Sorbo.
