Fontodi Vigna del Sorbo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2008 Review

Smells of deep cherry liqueur with a dose of black licorice hit the nose right away. Layers of dried fruit, sage, and olives emerge as it breathes. The palate is a pleasure, smooth and savory with hints of tannin that has almost melted away.
