Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Sophisticated, polished and graceful, the ’14 Vigna del Sorbo crackles with energy. Vibrant red berries dance on a backdrop of crushed river rocks, violet petals, baking spices, sun-warmed earth and pressed herbs in this wonderfully balanced wine. While some Vigna del Sorbo vintages are big reds, the 2014 is taut, muscular and very much alive; it whooshes across the palate, leaves chewy tannins and saline minerals in its wake, and crescendos in a fine, lingering finish. This mono-varietal Sangiovese derives from fifty-year-old vines grown on the estate’s southwest-facing Vigna del Sorbo plot; the grapes ferment for three weeks with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, and the wine ages for about 28 months in botti grande (about four months longer than is customary) before bottling.
