Fontodi – Vigna del Sorbo 2016 – Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

The nose is fruity and offers a fine intensity / concentration. The wine needs to be put in a carafe. It reveals notes of wild strawberries, blackberries and small notes of raspberries associated with fine touches of juicy / ripe cassis, fine hints of liquorice, nutmeg and very discreet hints of sweet spices, of violet, a subtle hint of ripe almond (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of balsamic (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy / slightly acidulous frame, tension, a crunchy finish, good freshness, a very fine richness / smoothness as well as a linear side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy raspberry, fleshy / juicy Boysenberry and small notes of fleshy / juicy red berries associated with a touch of crushed cassis, discreet hints of violet, olive tree and with very discreet hints of sweet spices, liquorice and mocha. A very discreet chew / crushed almond on the persistence.
