Wine Advocate Review
This is a highly celebrated and appreciated Sangiovese enjoyed all across Tuscany and far beyond. The San Felice 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is packed tight with hot vintage fruit ranging from wild cherry and cassis, to blackberry and plum. In between the red and the purple fruits are subtle hints of cured tobacco, crushed flowers and warm earth. This is a versatile and extremely food-friendly bottle offered at a great price for what it represents. Drink now-2026.
A deep ruby red, Il Grigio releases lingering, complex fragrances redolent of sweet violets and wild red berry fruit. The palate displays a wine of appreciable body, nicely lean-edged, and with a crisp acidity. Succulent tannins complement a delicate fruitiness, as does a broad complex of aromas enriched by just a hint of toasty oak. Overall, a beautifully harmonious wine.
