Added Apr 19, 2013 at 8:40amThe nose showed intense dark fruits, spiced cookie and rosemary with an undercurrent of dusty stone and minerals. On the palate this was rich yet detailed and structured with flavors of ripe, dark fruits followed by hints of herbs and cranberry carrying through the cheek-puckering finish. The balance of ripe fruit and structure here is stunning as it carries it's 15% alcohol effortlessly.

Added Mar 22, 2013 at 10:18amThe 2009 Querciabella was richer, darker and more forward than the ’10, showing red berries, wood spices and Tuscan dust. On the palate, tart red berries with hints of spice prevailed, staying juicy and rich throughout. The finish showed saturating red fruits and hints of earth. This wine was beautiful on this day and will likely improve a little over the next few years, but it’s so good now, who can resist?

Added Mar 22, 2013 at 10:18amThe nose showed red berries, floral notes, herbs and a slight hint of vanilla. On the palate, I found tart red berries with dusty spices and herbal notes leading to a structured finish with fine grain tannins. This was a great young expression of Vigna del Sorbo.

Added Mar 22, 2013 at 10:16amThe nose showed dark red and black fruits with wood spice, intense florals and raspberry undertones. On the palate, I found tart cranberry and raspberry fruits and dark chocolate against structured, medium-bodied textures. The finish was spice and full of tart red fruits. This wine was very enjoyable on this day but should continue to mature beautifully for, at least, another ten to fifteen years.

Added Mar 22, 2013 at 10:14amThe nose showed dark, spicy red fruits with hints of mint and floral undergrowth. On the palate, it was tight and densely packed with flavors of cherry, minerals and floral tones. The finish showed the wine’s structure as it turned lean and drying. I would put this in the cellar for another three to four years before tasting again.

Added Mar 22, 2013 at 10:13amThe nose showed cherry sauce with Tuscan dust, spicy notes, hints of mushroom and citrus. On the palate, it was focused with refined red fruits and inner floral notes. The finish was clean with pure red fruits and hints of structure. This was easily one of the best entry-level Chianti I’ve tasted this year.
