Fontodi Vigna del Sorbo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2017

Fontodi

96+ Vinous

"The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is a dense, packed wine. It is also surprisingly, almost shockingly backward. That is probably a good thing for its long-term aging prospects. Readers hoping to get an early glimpse into the 2017 before it shuts down may have a hard time doing that, as today acids and tannin dominate. I expect the 2017 will be stellar in another 4-5 years and drink well to age 25-30 if not longer. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti gave the 2017 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Sep 2020)

Jason at Vinified Wine has broadened my wine-drinking horizons! It’s been fantastic having an expert who can guide me to discover new favourites, as well as source hard-to-find bottles I’ve tried and loved elsewhere, and delight us every time a new case arrives. Vinified Wine provides incredible value and quality for every taste and every budget. Thank you Jason!

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
