Winemaker Notes

Sangiovese + Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards: Vigna del Sorbo with south-west exposure with 30 years old vines.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator

Full-bodied, displaying an amazing concentration of fruit and big, chewy tannins. Velvety and chewy, yet there's so much underneath. Layered and impressive, what a great wine. Best after 2011. 2,085 cases made.

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is seriously dark, rich and intense. Dark cherries, tobacco, herbs and minerals come together in this brooding, weighty Vigna del Sorbo. Today the wine comes across as completely closed and folded in on itself, but with time it should emerge as a beauty. The elegance of the superb 2004 seems missing, and this looks to be an especially concentrated vintage for this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
