San Felice 'Il Grigio' Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015

Il Grigio Gran Selezione is the fruit of a painstaking selection of the finest Sangiovese grapes grown in the vineyards Chiesamonti, Colti and Pianaccio, which were selected for their consistent quality production. A remaining 20% is represented by the extraordinary indigenous varieties recovered in San Felice’s Vitiarium: Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese, all selected to add lustre to the already noble Sangiovese. The result is an utterly unique blend, unmatchable anywhere in the Chianti Classico zone.

Region: Tuscany, Italy

Grape: 80% Sangiovese, native grapes 20%: Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, Mazzese

Tasting Note: Deep ruby red. The round bouquet releases fragrances that linger beautifully, with scents of sweet violets that meld into smooth, spicy hints of tobacco leaf. This is a full-bodied red, velvety smooth marked by ripe, succulent tannins harmoniously integrated with the acidity.

Food Pairing: Perfect with wild game, roasted and grilled meats, as well as aged cheeses.
