A moderately priced, pleasant Chianti for Italian fare. Very attractive smoke and toasty oak on the nose. Black cherry, spice aromas, with good acidity in this almost full-bodied red wine. Polished tannins. Pair with grilled meats.

Chianti Classico food pairings: bucatini with sausage and peas, roast beef, cheesy pizza, stuffed roasted turkey.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Amazing value! The nose is showing attractive notes of cherry, earthy and savoury aromas. The palate shows a nicely balanced duo of mouthwatering acidity and medium-smooth tannins. The flavours show extended complexity, fruit concentration and tremendous typicity. It's well priced, great quality for shows all the typical traits of a tried and true Chianti. This wine is quite yummy with pizza, but do try it with lamb skewers. Tasted May 2016. @sommsosa @bespoketastings
Made from the traditional Sangiovese grape and other native varieties, this full-bodied Italian red wine has smooth tannins. The 2013 vintage of the Chianti Classico San Felice is mostly of Sangiovese grapes with some Colorino and Pugnitello grapes. Pugnitello almost became non-existent until this winery started using it in this popular blend. - Community Wine Reviews
