The red Chianti Classico Gran Selezione "Vigna del Sorbo" is a wine that, from the small village of Panzano in Chianti, where Fontodi is based, has reached the top of the main sector guides, national and international. In fact, it is difficult to count the awards and recognitions that this label reaps every year, confirming the winery as one of the reference realities for the production of DOCG Chianti Classico, here declined in the Grand Selection version, and therefore subject to even more production standards stringent and rigorous. A complex bottle, with layered perfumes, which taste after taste, thanks also to the strong alcohol content, awakens all the senses. Simply magnificent.
This Chianti Classico Gran Selezione "Vigna del Sorbo" comes from an accurate blend created by Fontodi. Alongside 90% Sangiovese, the absolute protagonist of the Tuscan terroir, we also find 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, an international that has amply demonstrated that it can reach excellent quality levels within regional borders. The grapes, which grow on 40-year-old plants, in vineyards facing south-west, once collected and brought to the premises used for winemaking, ferment spontaneously thanks to the presence of indigenous yeasts in stainless steel containers, macerating at controlled temperature for 3 weeks. Then we move on to the aging phase, where the wine rests, for 24 months, in 50% new Troncais and Allier barriques.
The "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione announces itself to the eye with a bright ruby red color, crossed by flashes of garnet in the nail. The nose is teeming with well-orchestrated perfumes, in which notes of fruit and spices can be found, from which a reference to the viola also emerges. Tasting is excellent, warm and penetrating, with a sip characterized by a savory and mineral taste; closes with a finish of remarkable persistence. A bottle with which the Fondodi winery manages to enhance both the vines used within the blend, and the territory of origin, in a combination that is a guarantee of absolute quality.
