92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It's so encouraging to see a winery produce these results in what was a very challenging vintage. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio offers ripe cherry aromas with subtle hints of cured leather and smoked bacon at the back. This is a medium-weight wine with a fiber-rich and juicy finish. The blend is 80% Sangiovese with other red grapes. Each variety was fermented apart in stainless steel (with up to 22 days of maceration). After malolactic fermentation, it was aged in various sizes of oak vessels for 24 months. Some 40,000 bottles were made.

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.
Grigio Gran Selezione comes only from the winery's most naturally blessed plots. It is made of 80% Sangiovese blended with ancient indigenous varieties such as Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo and Mazzese; these varieties contribute to the complexity of the wine, while retaining the full elegance and expression of San Felice's terroir.
