Fontodi 'Vigna del Sorbo' Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 Review

The depth is is prominent, yet not too hefty. There is a mineral edge that runs through the wine. The alcohol is a bit high but doesn't mess with the finesse. Along with cherries and pulverized stone, you can also smell a hint of just-ripened raspberries. A food wine for sure.
