Agricola San Felice
“The estate is situated in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, near Siena, in other words, right in the heart of the Chianti Classico territory. With over 140 hectares of specialized vineyard, about 17,000 olive trees, the majority of the experimental plantations, the Vitiarium, the cellar and the village with its prestigious hotel complex, San Felice is a rare, not to say unique, blend of production, science, tourism and culture”
The village has ancient origins and grew up over the centuries around the church of San Felice in Pincis, which dates back to 714 A.D. In the mid 1800s, the Grisaldi Del Taja family made major changes to the layout and architecture, which are still visible today. The result of the thirty-year restoration programme is a small but resplendent gem. A portion of the village has played host to a prestigious hotel complex since 1991, which is part of the Relais & Chateaux Association. The accommodation is of the highest level, complete with wellness centre, swimming pool, sports facilities and a wide range of other comforts. The Michelin Star Restaurant Il Poggio Rosso and the Osteria del Grigio offer unforgettable dining experiences, revolving around the greatest dishes of Tuscan cuisine, accompanied by the best wines from our estate.
“The San Felice estate covers an area of more than 650 hectares in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, at an altitude of about 400 metres above sea level. The perfect combination of soil and microclimate, together with the wide temperature range, create the ideal conditions for producing truly irrepeatable wines and oils. To accentuate the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, we divided the area into different zones in the 1990s. We identified five macro-areas, and planted the grape varieties best-suited to the soil and geography of each.”
Located in fully renovated 19th-Century buildings within the village, the cellars are one of the first modern examples of a vinification and fining plant. All it takes is a brief visit to realise how past and present, and tradition and innovation can go hand-in-hand. Here, the latest technologies cohabit with Slavonian oak barrels and French oak tonneaux and barriques.
Rated 92 Points by Wine Spectator
Spice and toast aromas are followed by flavors of cherry, plum, wild herb and tobacco in this firm, dry red. Racy acidity keeps this focused, with a finish evoking tobacco and tea. Best from 2020 through 2032. 3,300 cases made.
