About Our Ratings

Il Grigio 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, San Felice
The 2011 vintage was selected as the #1 Wine in the Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2015

At San Felice, respect for the tradition of Chianti is united with avant-garde viticultural research and experimentation, carried out on 43 acres of vineyards, in conjunction with the Department of Horticulture of the University of Florence. The most extraordinary part of this is the "Bank of Vines", which consists of a five acre vineyards called the Vitiarium where approximately 278 lesser-known Tuscan vines are being cultivated. The fermentation of the grapes takes place in a modern vat-room equipped with stainless-steel tanks and more than 60 Slavonian oak casks made by master coopers. Il Grigio Gran Selezione is the result of painstaking selection of their best Sangiovese. Cultivated in five zones of excellence, combined with a 20% complement made up of five exceptional native varieties brought back to prominence in the San Felice Vitiarium: Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese. Wine Enthusiast scored this 94 points saying "This gorgeous, structured wine, made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% other native grapes, is all about depth and complexity. Ripe black cherry, blue flower, tilled soil, mineral, black spice and leather all jump out of the glass. The succulent fruit is impeccably balanced by fresh acidity and solid yet refined tannins. Drink now– 2025" and the Wine Advocate also scored it 94 saying "Extremely full and generous, the 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a seductive wine with the bold intensity and layering of a super Tuscan. Instead of international grapes, this Sangiovese-based wine is enhanced by 20% Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese varieties. The results are gorgeous, thanks to the rich softness the wine imparts in the mouth. Pristine flavors of dark fruit, smoke and pressed roses caress the palate. A pinch of balanced acidity helps the wine from feeling heavy or chewy. The 2010 vintage promises a steady evolution ahead."
