Vigna del Sorbo Gran Selezione originates from a vineyard exposed to the south west, with vines over 40 years in age. The wine is fermented for 3 weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maturation then takes place over a period of 24 months in barriques made from Tronçais and Allier oak, of which 50% is new wood.

Our tasting note

Vigna del Sorbo is sparkling rich ruby red in colour. On the nose, ripe fruit aromas of plum, damson and blueberry combined with spicy aromas of liquorice, tar and tobacco. Very full on the palate, ripe tannins and perfectly integrated acidity, with juicy fruit aromas of blackcurrants and wild berries. One of the most full-bodied Chiantis with a great future thanks to its concentration.


Giovanni Manetti, the owner of the Fontodi vineyard, is one of the driving forces behind the Chianti Classico renewal movement. With ambition, professionalism and the valuable support of the brilliant consultant Franco Bernabei, his vineyard in the heart of the Chianti Classico region is now one of the very top producers of Chianti. The secret behind the success of Fontodi is the sum of all the most carefully completed details. And this applies to the pruning of the vines, the selection during harvesting and the work in the wine cellar. Manetti leaves nothing to chance. And the wines reflect this: always balanced, vibrant and tangy and produced in a technically excellent manner. Fontodi exclusively practices bio-dynamic viticulture. Herbicides, pesticides and fungicides are gone without exception. The vines all face south and are perfectly aerated and have perfect drainage. These climatic conditions are ideal in order to allow the Sangiovese grape to ripen perfectly. The best grapes from a single vineyard are used in the famous Flaccianello della Pieve.
