JS 95 Vinous 94 WS 93 IWC 92 Pts - According to James Suckling - "This is so layered and complex with dark chocolate, mineral, wet stone and black cherry character. So much fruit and polished tannins in this wine yet tight and composed. It needs another three to four years to completely open and show what great quality it truly has."
According to Antonio Galloni - "Black stone fruits, smoke, tobacco, incense and sweet spices jump from the glass in the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo. The 2011 is going to need a few years for the baby fat to melt away. Today the flavors are ripe, dark and resonant, while the tannins are quite silky, but the best is yet to come. Even with all of its richness, the 2011 clocks in with acidity above 6%, which is virtually unheard of for a wine with this much dry extract, but, then again, we are talking about Sangiovese."
According to Wine Spectator - "A thick, powerful and modern style, with cherry and plum flavors and dense tannins. Licorice, leather and spice flavors add complexity while the tannins lend grip on the long, juicy finish. Best from 2016 through 2024."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Bright medium red. Intensely spicy, perfumed aromas of red berries, iron, coriander and flowers. At once deep and precise, offering a restrained sweetness but very good energy to its flavors of raspberry, licorice and flinty minerals. A rather pliant, accessible young Vigna del Sorbo, but still high-pitched, minerally and taut enough to remain incredibly light on its feet. Finishes with superb fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of raspberry, flowers and licorice." 15% ABV.
