Arguably one of the greatest Vigna del Sorbo bottlings ever made, this mono-varietal Sangiovese knocks it out of the park with its purity, nuance and transparency. Red and blue fruits are framed with crushed flower petals, sun-warmed earth, baking spices, leather and licorice in this remarkable ’13 bottling. Caressing yet energetic, this wine complements its racy acidity with a velvety texture, and its chewy tannins, breathtaking structure and long finish suggest that this wine will age for decades. This mono-varietal Sangiovese derives from forty-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 in barrels, one-half new, for 24 months before bottling.
