Meet the producer

An outstanding Tuscan winery that has pioneered key developments in the Chianti Classico region for the last 40 years.




Il Grigio is made from a selection of the best Sangiovese grapes from the Chianti Classico vineyards on the Agricola San Felice Estates in Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena. The vineyards are at altitudes of 350/400 m. above sea level and the soil is mostly limestone and loam. The vines are trained using the Guyot and Spurred Cordon methods. 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 18-24 months, while the remaining 20% was aged in French oak barriques. The wine then spent 6 months in bottle.

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, leather, spice and chewy savoury notes. A lush and complex red - long and full on the finish.

Food match

Excellent with grilled lamb, or roast duck or goose.
