Paired with seared salmon romaine lettuce peach with lemon vinaigrette and it was perfect fruit to match acidity to match and a finish that called for another sip — 2 months ago
Okay, my hands are aloft. I have to admit, I’ve no idea how a basic Chianti - retailing around £13 with a production close to half a million bottles annually - can be this good. Heck, good doesn’t do it justice: it’s sensational. This 2016 San Felice didn’t need much time in the decanter to unfurl its alluring aromas of fresh blackberry, cranberry, dried cherry, vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon and clove; truly a joy to sniff.
The palate of forthcoming, with a supple mouthfeel offering flavours of ripe but very fresh black and red fruits, clove - again - along with tangy acidity and an iron core. The finish lasts for some time, and I find it a wine I struggle to put down.
This is a fantastic wine and, at least in 2016, an absolute must buy for lovers of Chianti. — 19 days ago
Smooth, silky, light smoky aroma and strong tannins. Well balanced and stands on its own but also pairs nicely with meats and tomatoes. — 4 months ago
