Smooth and delicious, this boasts enticing scents of violet, berry, leather, tilled soil and aromatic herb. The radiant, elegant palate offers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and licorice, while a note of pipe tobacco closes the finish. Polished tannins and bright acidity provide balance and structure. Drink 2018–2025.

The San Felice 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio is a delightful wine packed tight with brilliant red fruit intensity and beautiful background notes of pressed violets, licorice, crushed stone, honey and blue flower. It offers everything you should expect of a traditional Chianti Classico. The mouthfeel is silky and streamlined with polished tannins and an impressive sense of elegant length and finesse. This is sublime Sangiovese that is executed with extreme honesty.

This is really outstanding with layers of refined tannins and fruit. Medium to full body, chocolate, berry and light cedar character. Long and caressing. Better in 2017 but so good now!
