James Suckling Review
Rated 95
This is so layered and complex with dark chocolate, mineral, wet stone and black cherry character. So much fruit and polished tannins in this wine yet tight and composed. It needs another three to four years to completely open and show what great quality it truly has. Super and truly gran selezione, or great selection in English.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 94
The plush and ripe 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo shows a Type-A personality with bold nuances of black cherry, sweet espresso and baking spice. It is comprised of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and ages for two years in French barrel (half the wine) as well as two months in large oak cask. The opulence and richness definitely stand out (the label registers 15% alcohol). Sweet tannins and rich extraction make up the finish.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 93
A thick, powerful and modern style, with cherry and plum flavors and dense tannins. Licorice, leather and spice flavors add complexity while the tannins lend grip on the long, juicy finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
Dark ruby red in color, this wine opens with aromas of dark black fruits, blackberry and victoria plum and notes of blackcurrant tart from the Cabernet. The powerful, full-bodied structure defines the palate and is given complexity by the smoky, savoury fruit, robust tannins and fine acidity.

95% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
