This is a highly celebrated and appreciated Sangiovese enjoyed all across Tuscany and far beyond. The San Felice 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is packed tight with hot vintage fruit ranging from wild cherry and cassis, to blackberry and plum. In between the red and the purple fruits are subtle hints of cured tobacco, crushed flowers and warm earth. This is a versatile and extremely food-friendly bottle offered at a great price for what it represents.

Sweet cherry, red plum, cedar, menthol, licorice, tobacco and leather all meld together in the Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio da San Felice. Silky tannins wrap it all together. This juicy, luscious Riserva can be enjoyed pretty much right out of the gate.
