San Felice Il Grigio 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

San Felice’s 2008 Chianti Classico (Sangiovese) offers up dried red cherries, flowers, tobacco and underbrush on a medium-bodied frame. The somewhat delicate, fleeting style suggests this is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Flowers, menthol and dried herbs add lovely complexity on the finish. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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

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.

dunkles Rubinrot. Im Bouquet komplex und würzig. Im Gaumen dicht, harmonisch und komplex mit reifen Fruchtkomponenten, recht langer Abgang.
