San Felice Chianti Classico 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

80% Sangiovese, 10% Colrino 10% Pugnitello Classic smoky red fruits greet the nose framed with nuanced dried herbal and tree bark aromas. Sweet fruit, nicely spicy and with a twang floats across the palate showing off a very pretty and aromatic style. The red fruit, ripe but fresh and raspberry toned is punctuated by slightly rough tannins that show an edge of astringency on the moderately long finish. 88pts

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

Tuscany, ItalyWine Spectator 94 points!San Felice Chianti Classico is a beautiful wine from the most famous appellation of Tuscany. Agricola San Felice is steeped in local lore and history. Named after a local early Christian saint from the 18th century, the property was bought by the Grisaldi Del Taja family - the founding members of the Chianti Classico consortium. The family produced wine for several centuries until 1968 when the estate passed to Enzo Morganti. Today the property includes a 1,853 acre resort, 445 acres of vineyards and a 44 acre parcel dedicated to experimental viticulture and genetic improvement of Sangiovese. The San Felice vineyards are situated among the gently rolling hills of the Castelnuovo Berardenga area of Chianti Classico. "Expressive and smooth, this red hits all the right notes, with pure black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Touches of earth, iron and tobacco add complexity. Best from 2020 through 2036."-B.S., Wine Spectator, 94 points!San Felice Chianti Classico is a traditional Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Colorino and Pugnitello. It is deep ruby red in color with aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and sweet violets. Medium in body with moderate acidity and silky tannins, this red offers flavors of black cherry, blackberry and plum, with well-integrated sweet oak. Aged for 10-12 months in French oak followed by an additional two months of bottle aging, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 5-6 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.Enjoy San Felice Chianti Classico with veal, pasta, osso buco, and aged cheeses.
