Winemaker's Notes

Grigio Gran Selezione comes only from their most naturally blessed plots. Made of 80% Sangiovese blended with ancient indigenous varieties such as Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese, which contribute to the complexity of the wine, while retaining the full elegance and expression of San Felice's terroir.

Smoke, meat and wet earth to the black fruit. Black truffle, too. Full-bodied, chewy and fruity. Lots of smoky wood. Tight and in need of time to open up, yet it already delivers beautifully polished, caressing tannins. Decant before serving. An amazing wine. Drink now.

"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.

A broad, rich style, backed by big, dense tannins. Black cherry, plum, earth and tree bark flavors mingle, riding the dusty tannins on the finish. Terrific length and a ripe core of fruit keep this balanced.

Lush, with a squarely modern-leaning style, the 2018 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio pours an inky and opaque ruby hue and reveals compact aromas of baked plum, vanilla bean, toasted cedar, and crushed violets. The oak influence cloaks the wine all the way through the palate, which is ripe up front before falling off, and unfolds savory dried herbs, cherry pit, and amaro. A ripe and more densely packed wine, this could work as a steppingstone into these wines for lovers of New World wines with generous wood spice. Drink 2025-2033.
