Professional Wine Reviews for San Felice Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
It's so encouraging to see a winery produce these results in what was a very challenging vintage. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio offers ripe cherry aromas with subtle hints of cured leather and smoked bacon at the back. This is a medium-weight wine with a fiber-rich and juicy finish. The blend is 80% Sangiovese with other red grapes. Each variety was fermented apart in stainless steel (with up to 22 days of maceration). After malolactic fermentation, it was aged in various sizes of oak vessels for 24 months. Some 40,000 bottles were made.

Winery San Felice

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany has been producing fine wines for almost three thousand years, and as such is widely recognized as being one of the key Old World wine regions which have shaped the way we understand and enjoy quality wines throughout history. Interestingly, the region is typified by a unique soil type which is not particularly good for growing grapevines, but in Tuscany, the emphasis has always been on quality over quantity, and low yields with high levels of flavor and intensity are preferred, and have become a feature of the region's wine industry. The main grape varietals grown in Tuscany are Sangiovese for the distinctive, flavorful and complex red wines, and Vernaccia for the exquisite dry white wines, although the last couple of decades have seen more varietals grown and an increasing trend towards 'Bordeaux style' wines.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
