#60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

This wine shows a beautiful appearance of dark maroon but allows for just enough ambient light to make it shine with ruby rays from deep inside. Then you have the bouquet that presents a solid wall of interwoven and ultimately beautifully balanced aromas. There is dark fruit, tobacco, leather, spice and polished river stone. Lastly, the mouthfeel reveals a similar level of extreme flavour equilibrium with very fine but still very young tannins. That mid-weight structure, matched to the wine’s natural acidity, is a major guarantee of longevity.

Wine Profile

tasting notes

The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo (100% Sangiovese) is a wine that inspires a deep, deep breath into your glass. There’s so much to take in and admire. So where to start? First, the wine shows a beautiful appearance that is thick and dark but allows for just enough ambient light to make it shine with ruby rays from deep inside. Then you have the bouquet that presents a solid wall of interwoven and ultimately beautifully balanced aromas. There is dark fruit, tobacco, leather, spice and polished river stone. Lastly, the mouthfeel reveals a similar level of extreme flavour equilibrium with very fine but still very young tannins. That mid-weight structure, matched to the wine’s natural acidity, is a major guarantee of longevity.
