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!

Robert Parker, Jr,'s Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is a beautiful wine with an inky dark appearance and softly contoured aromas of ripe cherry and dried blackberry. There is plenty of spice, tar and sweet tobacco to smooth over that beautiful fruit intensity; this is the sort of Chianti Classico you'd open for a marinated ribeye on the grill. The wine is compact and tight in the mouth. With 260,000 bottles made, Il Grigio is one of Italy's ultimate value reds. Drink date: 2019 - 2028." Sep 2019

James Suckling: "A very pretty, refined red with ultra-fine tannins, vivid fruit of crushed berries and tar, which all follow through to a medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Structured. So you can be patient; drink or hold." Nov 2019
