San Felice Chianti Classico

A great wine from San Felice – tremendous prestige and heritage matched with a very forward-thinking approach to wine making. A large estate, with 180 hectares of immaculately maintained vineyards in Castelnuovo Berardenga. The wine is made by Leonardo Bellacini, a master of ‘non interventionist’ approach to winemaking.  The secret lies in the high quality Sangiovese grapes from that once fermented are aged in large Slavonian oak ‘bott’’ for 10-12 months

Very attractive cedar and spice on the nose, with lifted, perfumed notes. Flavours of coffee and dark chocolate with a subtle tar character and a long supple finish.

Silver (outstanding) IWSC 2012
