San Felice : Il Grigio Gran Selezione 2010SKU :J1481/10
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Extremely full and generous, the 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is a seductive wine with the bold intensity and layering of a super Tuscan. Instead of international grapes, this Sangiovese-based wine is enhanced by 20% Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese varieties. The results are gorgeous, thanks to the rich softness the wine imparts in the mouth. Pristine flavors of dark fruit, smoke and pressed roses caress the palate. A pinch of balanced acidity helps the wine from feeling heavy or chewy. The 2010 vintage promises a steady evolution ahead.
