San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio 2015



Deep ruby red. Rich, long-lingering aromas are redolent of violets and wild red berry fruit. Il Grigio is a full-bodied wine, lean and firm, with succulent tannins anda tangy acidity. Ideal when accompanying meat-sauced first courses, roast pigeon, grilled steak.

Wine AdvocateThe 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. With 260,000 bottles made, this wine should be easy to locate.

Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, leather, charred earth, baked plum and a whiff of camphor form the nose. The taut, savory palate offers fleshy Marasca cherry, truffle and baking spice set against fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2027.

Wine Spectator Aromas of cherry, plum, earth and mineral indicate complexity right off the bat. The center is rich and packed with ripe fruit, while the muscular finish winds down slowly, showing elements of mineral, tar and tobacco. Serious, and should age well. Best from 2021 through 2032. 21,700 cases made.
