San Felice Chianti Classico Il Grigio Gran Selezione 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Inviting aromas of ripe red-skinned fruit, baking spice, new leather, scorched earth and a whiff of tobacco fill the glass. Smooth and elegant, it boasts an almost weightless concentration, doling out ripe Morello cherry, star anise, black raspberry and white pepper alongside taut, velvety tannins. Drink 2020-2035.
Here is a beautifully polished and elegant wine from the team at San Felice in Castelnuovo Berardegna. The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio is a supple and silky expression that delivers ripe fruit tones that are framed by mineral tones with mild spice and fragrant red rose. The wine is structured and firm with delicately drying tannins on the close. Drink this accessible Gran Selezione within the next 10 years. Some 50,000 bottles were made.
A mix of cherry, plum, leather, earth and tobacco flavors marks this pliable red. Spice elements add another dimension as this plays out on the tightly wound finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 4,160 cases made.
