San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio 2015
JS94: Another Chianti Classico Riserva that shows such purity of fruit, with brambleberries, blackcurrants, morello cherries, dark plums and a dash of dried herbs. Loads of fresh fruit on the palate that’s set across a frame of pretty acidity and a web of finely wrought tannins. A chewy yet taut finish. Drink in 2022.
WA92+: The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is one of my favorite wines among this group of new releases from San Felice. That low price is one reason. The wine exhibits a very lively and juicy quality of primary fruit that gives it that extra edge. Dark cherry and plum are followed up by leather, tar, licorice and grilled herb. This is a great near or medium-term drinking choice.
