City Wine Merchant: Now Offering A Favorite Riserva from the Heart of Tuscany
City Wine Merchant: Now Offering A Favorite Riserva from the Heart of Tuscany!
Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the heart of Tuscany, is home to some of Italy’s greatest wine producers. San Felice, not short of postcard-worthy scenery, is one of Tuscany’s treasures. It boasts Michelin-starred restaurants, perfect views, and a village with ancient origins. But the highlights are always the wines. Il Grigio is produced from 100% estate Sangiovese. It is aged 24-months in oak, with about 20% in small French barriques. The front label bears Titian’s famous portrait of a medieval knight in armor. The wine walks a wonderful line between traditional and modern and it is always one of Tuscany’s great values. Already having been awarded 93 points from both Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and James Suckling, the 2016 vintage is one of the finest vintages ever for this famous wine.
“The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is a beautiful wine … this is the sort of Chianti Classico you’d open for a marinated ribeye on the grill.” – Wine Advocate.
