    September 25, 2020 - Similar to last year's note. A redder fruit profile, with tobacco and spice adding interest. Still advisable to wait another couple years on these.

    July 11, 2020 - The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is of a quality that I have had in 25 years of conscious wine-drinking with a Chianti Classico at most two or three times in a glass. It is a new league, into which this Chianti is advancing, a league which until now has been closed to Chianti: the great wines of the world. This wine combines an aromatic richness and substance with a maximum of freshness, energy, sensuality and balance. Brilliant, gran-red colour with violet reflections of medium+ intensity. The nose is expansive, complex, animating and seductive.The aromas are perfectly woven, dark fruit, heart-cherry, plum, sweet balsamic, a little clove, tobacco box and espresso. On the palate full and thanks to the perfect acidity at the same time mouth watering, of perfect stature, rolling tannins, perfectly interwoven fruit and spice aromas. In its structure not unlike a wonderfully mature Californian, but the heart beats clearly Italian - typical Sangiovese aromas and the acidity I love so much is simply perfect. Great length. Truly a great Chianti Classico from 100% Sangiovese! The only flaw - virtually disappeared from the market. 97/100 - 2020-2035 - about 55 Euro

    July 8, 2020 - Opened for 1 hour. Needs 2 or 3 I think to fully open. This is a beautiful Chianti. Dark red color. Rich dark cherry on the nose. On the palate : dark red cherry, a bit of plum, liquorice and Asian spices. Needs more time though, give it 5 years.

    May 25, 2020 - Not your ordinary chianti. Truffles and black olives with nice acidity and long finish. Exceptional stuff!
