Vigna del Sorbo became a Gran Selezione wine starting with the 2010 vintage, although the first vintage ever made was 1985. The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo represents the first vintage in which the wine is made with 100% Sangiovese. Past vintages saw anywhere from five to ten percent Cabernet Sauvignon, but Giovanni Manetti pulled the vines to show his "commitment to Sangiovese," he says. "There's no going back." The Sangiovese comes from 45-year-old vines planted to southeast exposures in Galestro-rich limestone calcareous soils. This vintage in particular shows drying mineral sensations of brimstone and talc powder. The root systems on these plants are deep, resulting in added finesse and complexity. Feminine notes of rose petal and wild berry also appear. This wine offers a beautiful interpretation of Sangiovese with an extra level of fresh acidity at the rear.
