    There is nothing quite like an aromatic bottle of red straight from the hills of Tuscany.  This San Felice Riserva Il Grigio Chianti Classico is one of those wines; the minute we get a whiff, it starts us dreaming of all the foods we want to eat with it. Share it with friends and family if you must. We won't tell if you keep it all for you; we understand... This Riserva red works well with antipasti, full-flavored first courses, red meats, and aged soft cheeses. Pour yourselves generous glasses and tuck into a platter of grilled flank steak crostini with wilted mustard greens; they'll be perfect with the beautiful tannins. Depending on your mood, you can impress your diners with several choices. If you have the time, falling-apart tender osso buco will win you the blue ribbon. To bring out the lovely fruit of this San Felice, make it classic chicken cacciatore over polenta. A beef roast with Madeira sauce will accent the floral notes which make this Chianti Classico so remarkably delicious. For the earthy nuances of the wine, we say a simple pasta with tomatoes and black olives. Send everybody home happy with another glass or two and a mature Italian Taleggio cheese. Diamo inizio alla festa winelovers!

    James Suckling:  "Another Chianti Classico Riserva that shows such purity of fruit, with brambleberries, blackcurrants, morello cherries, dark plums and a dash of dried herbs. Loads of fresh fruit on the palate that’s set across a frame of pretty acidity and a web of finely wrought tannins. A chewy yet taut finish. Drink in 2022." Sept 2018

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is one of my favorite wines among this group of new releases from San Felice. That low price is one reason. The wine exhibits a very lively and juicy quality of primary fruit that gives it that extra edge. Dark cherry and plum are followed up by leather, tar, licorice and grilled herb. This is a great near or medium-term drinking choice.   Drink date:  2018 - 2026."  Oct 2018
