San Felice is located in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, a few kilometres from Siena, in the heart of Chianti Classico. Surrounding the tiny medieval hamlet and the winery complex are 140 hectares of vineyards, 80% planted with Sangiovese, a testimony to the commitment of San Felice to the production of Chianti Classico with a manifest bond to its local terroir, as shown by its ‘Il Grigio’ and ‘Poggio Rosso’ wines.

Made only from the finest Sangiovese grapes carefully selected from the estate Chianti Classico vineyards, this Reserva represents the perfect blend of the traditional and the modern. It spends some 24 months in oak, with about 20% in small barriques, and one year in the bottle. The front label bears Titian’s famous portrait of a medieval knight in armour.

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.
