I visited San Felice winery in year 2000 on my first trip to Italy – long before I was a WineGuy. “Those were the days” (isn’t this a song) when you could stash your favorite wine in carry-on luggage to drink on evening flights to Europe. Can you believe this was airline travel not long ago?
San Felice is best known for their Poggio Rosso Gran Selezione wine and their sister winery, Campogiovanni’s Brunello di Montalcino. Our winery visit included olive oil tasting which I recommend if you visit wine country.
Classico is the largest and most recognized Chianti district (read Black Rooster story). Chianti wines from Classico are typically medium body with mild tannins, nice balance of fruit and acidity.
SAN FELICE Chianti Classico 2013 $14
Easy drinking at 12.5% alcohol and exceptional value.
Vinous Media 89 rating says “The 2013 Chianti Classico is a soft, supple wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the fruit retains its attractive juiciness. Tobacco, licorice, herb and dried cherry notes add nuance, but overall, this is a relatively simple Chianti Classico.”
