Defining Agricola San Felice as a “project” means that it is far more than a simple agricultural operation, and alludes to the multi-faceted activities to which it is committed.

Defining Agricola San Felice as a “project” means that it is far more than a simple agricultural operation, and alludes to the multi-faceted activities to which it is committed. More specifically, since it became part of the Gruppo Allianz S.p.A., San Felice’s viticultural ambitions have grown in quantity and quality, focusing in particular on scientific research. At the same time, it has turned its efforts to hospitality services, livestock breeding, and environmental protection. Read less

The nose showed dark red fruits with black cherry, blackberry and citrus, followed by hints of undergrowth and herbs. On the palate, I found ripe red berries, beautiful inner floral and herbal notes with a regal structure. The lasting finish was focused, giving a slow-motion playback of its performance on the palate.

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028. - Robert Parker 93+ Points Fresh and vivid, evoking pure cherry, strawberry, tobacco and underbrush notes. There are stiff tannins, but this finds balance in the end. Best from 2015 through 2022. 20,000 cases made. -BS

Ein gehaltvoller, ausgewogener, nachhaltiger und fruchtiger Rotwein. Rubinrot. Mittelkräftiges Bouquet mit gewisser Komplexität. Steinobstfrüchte (Sauerkirsche, Zwetschge) dominieren leicht vor Beerenfrucht (Erdbeere) und etwas Dörrfrüchten. Dazu kommen Würze (Pfeffer, Vanille), leichte Röstaromatik (Kakao/Schokolade, Russ) und Ledernoten. Im Gaumen ist der Wein trocken. Säure/Gerbstoff sind noch etwas präsent. Insgesamt beurteilte das Degu-Team den Wein aber als recht weich, füllig und harmonisch. Im Rückgeruch zeigen sich die erwähnten Aromen nochmals präzise. Mittellanger Abgang.
