2010 Fontodi "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Riserva

SKU #1249849 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is magnificent, as it has always been. Rich, explosive and structured on the palate, the 2010 possesses stunning depth and nuance, along with the energy to age beautifully for the next 20+ years. The 2010 has begun to shut down in bottle, but from time to time, the magic comes through. In my opinion, the 2010 is the greatest Vigna del Sorbo ever made. Readers should be aware that the 2010 was sold in two tranches; the first bottles were labeled Chianti Classico Riserva, while the second set of bottles were sold under the new Chianti Gran Selezione designation. The wine is the same. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2014)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is a timeless expression that embraces all the canons of great winemaking. This vineyard-designate expression (Sangiovese and a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon are planted here) boasts a delicately floral side in 2010 with dried violets and blue flower that gracefully lift the bouquet. Beyond the floral tones are shadings of cassis, wet earth, anisette and tobacco. Like the other wines of Fontodi, Vigna del Sorbo shows an ethereal side and inner elegance that is impossible to repeat elsewhere. It’s sure to develop bottle complexity over the years.

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wonderful aromas of blackberries and blueberries with hints of dried flowers. Full-bodied, tannic and structured. Juicy fruit too. Rich and rounded. This is always one of the top Chianti Classicos. Inner quote mark (11/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lush and dark, boasting black cherry, blackberry, tobacco and earth flavors. Though the texture is initially supple, firm, dense tannins take over on the finish. Needs time. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2013)
