Since 1980, Fontodi has been handcrafting this spectacular blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Vigna del Sorbo vineyard in Tuscany’s famed Chianti region. The southern aspect of this vineyard and its position within the natural amphitheater of the Conca d’Oro provide optimum climatic conditions to achieve near perfect ripening for the grapes and excellent character and structure in the finished wines.
Fontodi’s 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is a profound wine awarded an incredibly impressive 95 Points by Robert Parker: “The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is seriously dark, rich and intense. Dark cherries, herbs and minerals come together in this brooding, weighty Vigna del Sorbo…this looks to be an especially concentrated vintage for this wine.” Fontodi’s Chianti Classico Riserva is the definitive wine to showcase the exceptional fruit and prestige of the renowned world-class Tuscan region. This impeccably poised and balanced wine is extremely complex and deeply expressive, an exciting and very special selection for our Diamond PLUS! members.
