Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio
Blend: 100% Sangiovese
From: Italy, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
By: Tenuta San Felice
Il Grigio Riserva is 100% Sangiovese, vinificated in steel and aged 24 months in French and Slavonian wood, then 6 months in bottle to refine. On the nose this wine is elegant, wide and intense, red berries, flowery note of violets and black pepper. The palate is intense, well balanced, fruity, tannins and a good acidity. Very long lasting finish.
The Chianti Classico area is probably one of the most known rural areas in the world, defined as long ago as 1716, with an iconic symbol, the “black rooster”. The San Felice estate has always been innovative and creative. Anticipating the new trends and creating new styles. As a strong believer of indigenous grapes such as Sangiovese, the winery has always promoted and supported the territory and was the first in the area to produce wines from a specific vineyard (aka Cru).
