The 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is stunningly beautiful. At the same time, I have to report that the window for tasting the 2012 as a young wine appears to be closing. The density of the fruit and creaminess of the tannins are still evident if somewhat less obvious than they were a year ago, while the aromatics aren't quite as explosive as they have been in the past. The wine's depth and intensity suggest the 2012 will be fabulous once it emerges from its current period of dormancy. In this tasting, the 2012 shows a more red fruit and lifted profile than the 2013, where the flavors are darker.

An opulent, fruity style, boasting black cherry, blueberry and spice flavors, accented by tobacco and earth details. This needs time to find equilibrium and stretch out on the complex finish. Best from 2017 through 2026. 3,800 cases made.

Ripe plum, black cherry, blue flower, baking spice, toasted oak and a balsamic note are just some of the aromas and flavors you'll find on this full-bodied, structured red. Velvety tannins support the juicy flavors and the fruit richness absorbs the hefty alcohol. It's still a bit on its oak and will be even better once it has a chance to come together. Drink 2017-2027.
