4 stars "Darker, deeper and more developed / stewed fruits than I expected. Not as bright as would expect. Nose of wood, raisins. plum, balsamic & brush. Soft, lush and even with developed fruits, still has really nice acidity & liveliness. Finished with leather and menthol spices on the long finish. Excellent. "

93 points "The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna del Sorbo is beautiful in this vintage. It shows gorgeous mid-palate depth and pliancy, with wonderful richness in its sweet dark fruit, smoke, licorice and grilled herbs. The 10% Cabernet Sauvignon works particularly well in this vintage, as it seems to give the wine a measure of depth and delineation that is less obvious in the Flaccianello. Higher toned floral notes add lift on the finish. The Vigna del Sorbo is a touch restrained in 2008, as are most wines, yet it shows fabulous balance and tons of personality." Best 2014-2028
