Natalie's Score: 90/100

A luscious, medium-bodied superbly balanced Italian red wine. This moderately priced, pleasant Chianti is perfect 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. 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. Pair with grilled meats.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine has loads of tart cherry aromas as well as red berries, sweet spice, and earthy qualities such as red beets and autumn leaves. The tannins are fairly structured and well integrated with the vibrant acidity. In terms of flavours, there is tart cherries and black plums with velvety cocoa at the finish.

This wine would pair well with medium or medium-rare grilled red meat.

Tasted November 2017
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made from mainly Sangiovese grapes from Tuscany in traditional Chianti style, this is one elegant pour. Aromas of spicy red berries and hints of leather carry through on the palate with a peppery finish.
Perfect with sausage dishes or pizza.
Tasted January 2018.
San Felice (2015) is a Sangiovese, Colorina and Pugnitello, full-bodied Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region. Look for dried herbs, flowers, black cherry and spice on the palate. Perfect for Nonna's homemade meat lasagne. - Community Wine Reviews
