This vintage marks San Felice's adherence to the Gran Selezione production philosophy. The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio is an elaborate and soothing expression with soft contours and lots of dark cherry fruit that reflect the warm vintage. There are some rough edges that ultimately contribute to the wine's compelling texture and personality. I like the way this wine embraces its contrasts.
