Description

A classic style of Chianti Riserva which sets the standard for San Felice’s estate wines – elegant yet generous with layers of meaty, balsamic notes plus berry fruit and spice.

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 350/400 m altitude, with mostly limestone and loam soils. The vines are trained using Guyot and Spurred Cordon methods. The must was fermented on the skins for 18-20 days at 28-30 degrees C. 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.

I can’t believe it’s not Gavi!

This superb Cortese from Piemonte gives many a more expensive Gavi a run for their money. So what’s in a name? Gavi di Gavi is certainly one that brings to mind classy Italian white and a price tag to match. This wine isn’t a Gavi di Gavi but it’s darn close to one as it […]
