Vacation Wines - No 25 - 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio, San Felice
2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio, San Felice
Eight years old and still a baby. It needed some serious time in the glass and some vigorous svirling before it reveals notes of ripe black cherries, black olives, Tuscan gravel, ripe flowers and a hint of tobacco. A very fine structure. Lots of promise here.
The taste is tight and finely constructed with notes of dry licorice, tapenade, black cherries and rosemary. Fine, polished tannins. Not any maturity to talk abot, wait at least 6+ years. Very, very good.
