NEW RELEASE!!...ANOTHER WINNER IN A LONG LINE OF HITS!!

"The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio is a beautiful wine with an inky dark appearance and softly contoured aromas of ripe cherry and dried blackberry. There is plenty of spice, tar and sweet tobacco to smooth over that beautiful fruit intensity; this is the sort of Chianti Classico you'd open for a marinated ribeye on the grill. The wine is compact and tight in the mouth. With 260,000 bottles made, Il Grigio is one of Italy's ultimate value reds." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Here is a proud, noble wine, taciturn but decisive, precisely as we imagine Il Grigio, the grey-bearded medieval knight dramatically presented in local stories, and perfectly suggested by Titian in the portrait utilised on the wine’s label.

Produced from carefully-selected sangiovese grapes, Il Grigio represents the iconic elegance of the traditional Chianti Classico, exhibiting the steely temperament, the dynamism, and the ability to surprise typical of the adventurous, all qualities eminently characteristic of the noble variety that yields Il Grigio.
