Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AG=94) Fontodi's 1999 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is another dazzling wine. Rich, powerful and intense, the 1999 brings to mind the 2006 in its ample, full-bodied, structured personality. Hints of mocha and chocolate from the slightly higher-toast barrels that were typical of the era add complexity, nuance and depth. Violets, tar and licorice inform the powerful, virile, voluptuous finish. This is another remarkably well-balanced Sorbo, although the style is very much that of the time. (WA=92-93) The nose is very closed with black cherry, cedar and a hint of black coffee. The palate is very backward, more masculine and structured with a touch of tar mixed in with redcurrants and minerals. Quite robust on the finish, I think this wine is going through an adolescent stage and needs 3-4 years to open up. Great potential. Tasted September 2005. (WS=91) Impressive aromas of crushed berries, with hints of cedar. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, bright, fruity finish. Delicious. Best after 2003. 3,300 cases made
