Fontodi’s 2012 Vigna del Sorbo #ChiantiClassico #GranSelezione is all that ~ night one deep and dark with herbs, roots and barks for tea dominating the flavors ~ dark fruits popping a bit more when paired with sausage pasta ~ night two more red fruits emerging especially when paired w steak and truffle fries 😉

The nose was rich with depths of red fruits, yet there was a bright and lifting quality to the fruit which added alluring contrasts. Cherry, crushed strawberry, minerals and hints of spice wafted up from the glass. On the palate, I found wild berry fruit with hints of herbs and cedar, as a wave of acidity pulsed across the senses. The finish showed tremendous length along with imposing structure, yet the fruit remained rich, intense and ever-present. The 2012 Fontodi VdS is now 100% Sangiovese, and it has firmly found its place as one of the top wines of the region.

Beautiful, rich, & complex. Shows a velvet-like texture immediately. Open and inviting with a ripeness to the fruit and silky tannins. Loved this.
