Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Sumptuous red cherries and brambly black fruits layer with cigar wrapper, warm loam, licorice, violet petals, exotic spices and sun-warmed rocks in the epic, blockbuster ’15 Vigna del Sorbo. For all its overt richness, this wine unfolds with laser-like precision, revealing copious dry extract, keen acidity, polished tannins, and elegant minerality as it shifts to a kaleidoscopic, lingering finish. Fontodi knocked it out of the park with its ’15 Vigna del Sorbo; enjoyable now with liberal decanting, this wine will drink for years and years to come. This mono-varietal Sangiovese derives from vines that are upwards of 40 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 about 30 months in botti grande (about four months longer than is customary) before bottling.
