The 2004 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is an explosive wine endowed with a layered, sumptuous expression of sweet dark fruit. Menthol, licorice and floral overtones develop in the glass, adding further complexity. This stunningly beautiful wine offers tremendous persistence yet it will require patience as its structural components are formidable. I tasted the Vigna del Sorbo several times, including alongside Felsina's Riserva Rancia, consulting oenologist Franco Bernabei's other top-notch Riserva. Both wines were exceptional, but the Vigna del Sorbo showed a touch more freshness typical of wines from Panzano. Simply put, 2004 is a phenomenal vintage for this wine. Vigna del Sorbo is made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon which was grafted onto the rootstocks of the white varieties that were previously planted in the vineyard.

Needs air to coax out the superrich vein of black cherry and ripe plum fruit, with hints of fresh earth and herbs. Full-bodied, with a supersilky texture that firms up the finish. There's lots of new oak, but this is well-constructed. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.
