"Fairly complex, but still bright, with spiced red plums and cherries, bark, leather and a hint of mushroom savoriness. Quite integrated and silky with a medium to full body, rounded by firm but velvety tannins. Long, yet subtle and fruit-expressive. Already delicious now, but you should hold this for two years and wait for additional complexity to emerge."

"Moving into a more serious realm, the 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is flush with savory black licorice, fresh leather, and kirsch. It has impeccable balance and length between its concentrated core of sweet fruit, with ripe tannins, warming spice, and notes of blood orange, cherry compote, and cedar. This fantastic release from San Felice casts a net for lovers of classic and more modern sensibilities alike at a great price."

"This is a terrific value. Showing a lively but saturated ruby color, the San Felice 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio offers a flurry of aromas, including red fruit, dried cherry, grilled rosemary, crushed stone and wet brick. The wine is all Sangiovese, although a pinch of Pugnitello is used in some vintages, with only the best berries selected by an optical sorter. The wine's label features artwork by Tiziano (the painter also known as Titian), featuring a heroic figure that brought military victory to Siena. This vintage is especially vertical and forthcoming compared to past editions. Best After 2022."
