Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
One of the greatest Vigna del Sorbo releases to date, the 2016 frames its luscious red and blue fruits with seductive notes of forest floor, truffles, fresh loam, new leather, and kisses of blood orange, pressed herbs, cedar wood, and flower petals. Super-fresh acidity, elegant minerality, and Sangiovese’s telltale dusty tannins underpin the wine’s glorious dry extract as this Fontodi beauty glides to a lingering, nuanced, and delicious finish. This mono-varietal Sangiovese derives from vines that are almost 60 years of age, grown on the estate’s southwest-facing Vigna del Sorbo plot; the grapes ferment with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for about a month, and the wine ages for a total of 28 months, the first few months in barrique (45% new) and the remainder in botti grande.
