« Le Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo est un vin qui exprime une vision contemporaine de ce que peut être le Chianti Classico sans pour autant en oublier ses racines. Ce mono-cépage Vigna del Sorbo ajoute au Sangiovese 10% de Cabernet Sauvignon (plantés sur les racines du Sangiovese).

Sa texture, typique du Sangiovese,  présente des tannins aux grains fins et légers qui en font la marque de fabrique de ce millésime. Le Cabernet, pour sa part, ajoute une dimension de teintes sépia aux fruits et une plus grande richesse au corps, sans dominer le profil aromatique et savoureux du vin. L’éclatante chaleur du Panzano y contribue également, puisque les fruits sont merveilleusement mûrs et charnus dans ce millésime. Tout est parfaitement équilibré, y compris les arômes du fût de chêne, qui sont à peine perceptibles.

Aujourd’hui Vigna del Sorbo est très jeune. Il devrait commencer à être plus expressif au bout de 10 d’âge et continuera à être merveilleux pour encore une décennie. Vigna del Sorbo est un véritable repère international du style Chianti Classico. Voici encore un excellent travail du propriétaire Giovanni Manetti. Maturité anticipée : 2017-2032. » -  Robert Parker- Wine Advocate.

James Suckling (JS) : 97 Points (2015)
What a nose of clay, earth, crushed stones, rose petals, red licorice, baking spices, tar and Chinese spices. The level of sophistication to the red-fruited core, laser-sharp acidity and polished tannins, which grip and caress the palate, make this the greatest Chianti Classico ever made by Fontodi. From organically grown grapes. A long, long finish. Drink in 2022.

Decanter (DCT) : 97 Points (2015)
Fontodi's Vigna del Sorbo sits in front of the estate. Southwest facing on galestro soil, the vineyard totals 8ha at an altitude of 450 metres. First produced in 1985, it has been designated as a Gran Selezione since the 2010 vintage. Initially closed, this expands slowly with nuances of red cherry, currants, earth, sage and liquorice coming into clear focus. The palate is well-endowed with compact fruit that has effortlessly absorbed the oak and maintained its integrity. The tannins are vigorous yet harmonious, making for a powerful wine that manages to remain elegantly poised.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 97 Points (2015)
Another captivating wine in this range, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is all class. A rush of dark cherry, plum, sage, lavender and menthol races across the palate. Deep and powerful, yet also remarkably light on its feet, the 2015 has it all. Moreover, the 2015 is one of the most refined Vigna del Sorbos yet. It won't be long before the 2015 is recognized as one of the all-time great Vigna del Sorbos. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti prefers whole berry ferments in order to maintain as much freshness as possible. In recent years, Manetti has reduced punchdowns to just once a day in fermentation. The gentler approach to extraction comes through loud and clear. Rating: 97+

Robert Parker (RP) : 96 Points (2015)
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 flavor 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. Rating: 96+

Wine Spectator (WS) : 95 Points (2015)
This is concentrated and monolithic, with blackberry and black cherry flavors augmented by tar, tobacco and iron notes. Offers excellent potential, but needs time to absorb the tannins. Powerful, showing fine length. Best from 2023 through 2040.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 95 Points (2014)
Exotic spice, pipe tobacco, dark-skinned berry, forest floor and a whiff of French oak all come together on this structured red. The elegant, full-bodied palate evokes Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and white pepper while vibrant acidity and firm, fine-grained tannins provide balance. It’s still young, with great energy and will benefit from more time in the bottle. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018* (KO) (3/2018)

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2014)
Lustrous ruby. Garden herbs and cherry. Elegant maraschino cherry palate, but the fruit doesn't entirely follow through onto the finish and closes up. Nebbiolo-like tannins. Will improve, no doubt, but in any case, I wouldn't cling to this. 16.5/20 points. (WS) (2/2018)
