San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti|
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.
Intense, featuring plum, cherry, earth and leather aromas and flavors that intermingle with the dense structure. The balance is there, but this needs time to absorb the tannins. Best from 2022 through 2033. 21,667 cases made, 5,500 cases imported.
