San Felice Il Grigio Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

2012

In a Nutshell

A classic Chianti Riserva - with elegant layers of red and black fruit, and smooth spice on the palate.

Tasting Notes

A nose of fresh plush red fruit and blackberries, with spicy, savoury tobacco characteristics. The textured palate opens up to show dense rich fruit, with layers of black cherry, spice and savoury notes. A lush and complex red - long and full on the finish.

Production Notes

The must was fermented on the skins for 18-20 days at 28-30 degrees Centigrade. This was followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. 80% of the wine was matured in Slavonian oak botte (60/90 Hl) for 18 months, while the remaining 20% was aged in French oak barriques. The wine then spent 6 months in bottle.
