Winemaker's Notes:

Its ruby hue is notably intense, the bouquet insistent and complex, exhibiting ripe wild berry fruit and spices. In the mouth, it is rich and deep, with warm alcohol and tannins that are silk-smooth and succulent.

About San Felice:

Agricola San Felice is a multi-faceted enterprise with activities spread over various locations:

Above all, of course, the tenute, or farm estates, with their prized vines and olive trees; the Vitiarium, where most of the scientific research is carried out; the winecellars, where all of the production takes place, from vinification to maturation in barriques and bottling.

Also the frantoio, or olive-oil press; the borgo, the company headquarters and retail enoteca, but, in particular, a medieval hamlet transformed into an elegant hotel complex; and, finally, the livestock operation, centred on raising prized local breeds.

The Tenuta San Felice lies in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, at an altitude of about 400 metres, in the southern portion of the Chianti Classico district. It encompasses some 650 hectares, of which 140 are in high-quality vineyards, and boasts about 17,000 olive trees.
