Il Grigio San Felice Chianti 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio (Sangiovese) comes across as soft and pliant, very much in the style of the vintage. A warm, open bouquet leads to succulent ripe cherries, flowers and spices, all of which flow through nicely to the enveloping finish. Today the juiciness of the fruit makes Il Grigio very attractive, but readers who prefer more tertiary complexity will want to wait for a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.

The nose showed animal musk and dusty black cherry. On the palate, I found vibrant strawberry fruit, spice and earthy minerals. This wine is well structured and has great balance. It was a pleasure to drink.

Ein ausgewogener, gehaltvoller, fruchtiger Rotwein mit gewisser Nachhaltigkeit. Granatrot. Das Bouquet dieses Weines ist recht komplex und mittelkräftig. Es dominieren eher etwas die Dörrfruchtaromen (Feige und Rosinen) vor den beerigen Eindrücken (Cassis). Dazu kommen ergänzend leicht grünliche Noten (Efeu) und Würze (Lakritz). Auch eine Spur Röstaromatik ist vorhanden (Rauch) und mineralisch/erdige Attribute (Teer, Pilz). Im Gaumen empfand das Degu-Team eine noch etwas markante Adstringenz, die von einer Gerbstoffreserve stammen dürfte. Insgesamt wurde der Wein aber als harmonisch eingestuft, füllig und von mittlerer Länge. Die Rückaromatik ist sehr präzise.

Nebst der Eleganz eines typischen Chianti Classico, zeichnet sich dieser Rotwein durch die reifen Fruchtaromen und seine würzigen Komponenten aus.
