"Il Grigio" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG - San Felice

A perfect marriage, that is when the ethic speaks of the wine and the wine speaks of its territory: 100% Sangiovese, austere, full-bodied, with an intense and persistent bouquet, it resembles the aromatic complexities of well-dosed wood; a symbiosis between product and graphic sign that has contributed to making it an icon of Chianti Classico.

San Felice is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, a few kilometres from Castelnuovo Berardenga and Siena. It is a company of about 1700 hectares, 185 of which are planted with vines in the three most prestigious production areas of Tuscany: Chianti Classico, Montalcino and Bolgheri. San Felice immediately stands out in the production of excellent wines in the three denominations, winning prestigious international awards, in a continuous evolution in quality, research and product innovation. Since the 1980s he has undertaken an important activity of experimentation on ancient Tuscan vines, including the "Pugnitello", today the symbol of a particularly expressive iconic label. Moreover, over the years the historic medieval village, which was built in the middle of the vineyards, became a 5-star hotel that was the first Resort in Chianti Classico to enter the international circuit of luxury hotellerie Relais Chateaux in 1992.

Awarded
  • Robert Parker 93

    The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is a beautiful wine with an inky dark appearance and softly contoured aromas of ripe cherry and dried blackberry. There is plenty of spice, tar and sweet tobacco to smooth over that beautiful fruit intensity; this is the sort of Chianti Classico you'd open for a marinated ribeye on the grill. The wine is compact and tight in the mouth. With 260,000 bottles made, Il Grigio is one of Italy's ultimate value reds.

  • James Sucking 93

    A very pretty, refined red with ultra-fine tannins, vivid fruit of crushed berries and tar, which all follow through to a medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Structured. So you can be patient; drink or hold.
