For a wine to be included in the Top 25 wines of the year from Wine Spectator it’s gotta have a few things: exceptional value for the price, one of the very best examples of the year in its category and unlike anything else.
Check, check, check.
San Felice has been a fixture in Tuscany, especially Chianti since the 1800s. It’s an absolutely massive, sprawling estate that longs for nothing. The property includes a 1,853 acre resort, 445 acres of vineyards and a 44-acre parcel dedicated to experimental viticulture and genetic improvement of Sangiovese.
To make it even worse for the competition, the estate is armed with the perfect combination of soil and micro-climate, together with the wide temperature range, creating ideal conditions for producing truly inimitable wines. If Wine Spectator had to name one Chianti Classico in their top 25 this year, this one makes a whole lot of sense – it’s pretty fantastic.

This supple red shows a core of cherry and plum fruit allied to olive, juniper and tobacco notes. Delivers well-integrated tannins and acidic structure, lingering nicely on the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino and Pugnitello. Drink now

A medium-to full-bodied Chianti Classico with fresh strawberries, grapefruit, raspberries and a herbal undertone. This is juicy and transparent with a tight, tannic structure. Not austere, though.
