Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Sangiovese based wine from San Felice is very good. It opens with a mild blackberry bouquet with hints of black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well-balanced, polished, and smooth. The flavor profile is a black licorice, black cherry, and blackberry blend with notes of black plum. I also detected hints of black olive, cedar, and clove in the mix. The finish is dry, and its enjoyable fruity flavors and dusty tannins stick around for quite a while. This Chianti Classico Gran Selezione would pair well with Italian beef braciola. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby red. The round bouquet releases fragrances that linger beautifully, with scents of sweet violets that meld into smooth, spicy hints of tobacco leaf. This is a full-bodied red, velvety smooth marked by ripe, succulent tannins harmoniously integrated with the acidity. Perfect with wild game, roasted and grilled meats, as well as aged cheeses.
