"The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted at Fontodi. Period. The long sublime finish alone is enough to stop you in your tracks. An exceptionally beautiful and polished wine the 2012 is incredibly finessed on the palate with remarkable nuance for such an intense wine. Sweet rose petal lavender and mint add brightness to the Sangiovese fruit in a stunning vivid Chianti Classico that hits all the right notes. This is the first vintage in which Vigna del Sorbo is 100% Sangiovese. The elimination of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon has elevated the Sorbo to an even higher level than has been the norm of late. Over the last few months the 2012 has begun to shut down in bottle so readers will have to be patient. The 2012 Vigna del Sorbo is a must have wine. It's as simple as that. "
