Agricola San Felice

A classic style of Chianti Riserva which sets the standard for San Felice's estate wines - seemlessly combining plush generous fruit with a traditional style and structure.

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 San Felice estate near Siena. The vineyards are at 350/400m altitude, with mostly limestone and loam soils. The must is fermented on the skins for 18-20 days at 28-30 degrees C. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. 80% of the wine is matured in Slavonian oak botte (60/90 Hl) for 18-24 months, while the remaining 20% is aged in French oak barriques. The wine then spends 6 months in bottle.

Tasting notes

A nose of redcurrants and blackberries with savoury tobacco notes. The textured palate has dense rich fruit with layers of black cherry, bramble and spice. A fine and complex red with juicy acidity balancing supple tannins, and well-integrated oak giving a long and savoury finish.

Food match

Excellent with grilled lamb, or roast duck or goose.
