Product Overview

92 Points, "Smart Buys", #24 on "Top 100 Wines of 2022" - Wine Spectator
"This supple red shows a core of cherry and plum fruit allied to olive, juniper and tobacco notes. Delivers well-integrated tannins and acidic structure, lingering nicely on the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino and Pugnitello. Drink now through 2030. 29,000 cases made, 9,745 cases imported." -BS, 9/30/22

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Top soil and underbrush emerge first on the nose of San Felice's benchmark Chianti Classico, followed by cherries, plums and finally crushed rocks and crumpled rose petals. Fresh cranberry and Bing cherry are enlivened by orange zest, a sprinkling of pepper and soil, and final whisper of dark chocolate. Fresh and crunchy is the vibe, confirmed by tannins that are still structured but broken in, like a good pair of jeans." -DC, 4/1/23

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"From a hot vintage, the 2020 Chianti Classico shows ripe cherry fruit that is prominent but not overdone. Fresh acidity gives balance to this entry-level red. The 2020 growing season saw frost in April, and yields were down by 30% as a result. The season became very hot and dry toward the end of summer, causing dehydration and the berries to shrink. Fortunately, the vines shut down at the highest temperatures as a defense mechanism, and the wine's color, freshness and fruit flavors were largely protected. This Sangiovese-based wine has tiny percentages of Pugnitello and Colorino in the blend. This is a job well done." -ML, 2/9/23

88 Points - Vinous
"The 2020 Chianti Classico is a soft, easygoing wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet dried cherry, mint, spice, cedar, tobacco and incense give this mid-weight Chianti Classico lovely aromatic presence to match its mid-weight personality." -AG, Jun/2022
