Winemaker's Notes

Our Chianti Classico is purely classical in style, relaxed and easy-going, elegant and rounded, medium-bodied, youthful, and fruity. A wonderful expression of the distinctive character of sangiovese.

Critical Acclaim

"Full of sweet cherry, raspberry, floral and balsamic notes, this red presents a tension between sweet fruit and wild, leafy elements, followed by a firm finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 30,000 cases made. "
88 Points

"San Felice’s 2008 Chianti Classico (Sangiovese) offers up dried red cherries, flowers, tobacco and underbrush on a medium-bodied frame. The somewhat delicate, fleeting style suggests this is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Flowers, menthol and dried herbs add lovely complexity on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013. "
