San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio 2016
San Felice is one of Tuscany’s treasures. It boasts Michelin-starred restaurants, perfect views, and a village with ancient origins. Il Grigio is produced from 100% estate Sangiovese, aged 24-months in oak. The wine walks a wonderful line between traditional and modern, packed with dark berries, leather, and licorice. It is always one of Italy’s great values.
WA93: 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.
JS93: 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.
