2014 Chianti Classico Riserva, Vigna del Sorbo, Gran Selezione, Tenuta Fontodi


$79.00 per Bottle


9 Bottles




"A powerful, structured wine, the 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo won't be ready to drink for a number of years, much less be at its best. In recent years, the Sorbo has been much more forward, but the 2014 is decidedly austere and ungiving. Graphite, smoke, black cherry, plum and licorice notes infuse the dark, mysterious finish."

"I tasted this wine as a preview about eight months ago, and it has fleshed out considerably since then. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo impresses for the depth and the intensity of the fruit. The bouquet is shapely and round with dark cherry nuances, blackberry, grilled herb and sweet spice. You also get a lingering moment of strong firmness and power on the close. This wine does the vintage proud." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #233

"An elegant version, with a keen edge of tannins underlining the pure cherry, blackberry, leather and earth flavors. Turns more polished with air, finishing up with a hint of bitter almond. Best from 2019 through 2030. 350 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"A slightly lean Gran Selezione with cherry and chocolate character. Some cedar. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"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." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
