94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This gorgeous, structured wine, made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% other native grapes, is all about depth and complexity. Ripe black cherry, blue flower, tilled soil, mineral, black spice and leather all jump out of the glass. The succulent fruit is impeccably balanced by fresh acidity and solid yet refined tannins. Drink now–2025. *Editors' Choice* (KO) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio opens to a deeply saturated color that is thick and luminous at the same time. In terms of bouquet, this Riserva veers toward the far end of the aromatic spectrum (as far as Chianti Classico is concerned) with dark tones of spice, saddle leather, pressed rose and moist earth. The finish excels in terms of softness and richness. This is a bold and modern wine with soft tannins and rich extract. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark San Felice's 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio is mostly Sangiovese with 20% other indigenous grapes. An exotic, spiced bouquet melds into dark red cherries, mint, wild flowers, leather, menthol and tobacco. The flavors are intriguing, layered and deep in a wine that impresses for its complexity. This is a terrific showing from San Felice. The new Gran Selezione Il Grigio encompasses much of what San Felice is all about; namely the intersection of Sangiovese and other native, once-forgotten grapes. It will be interesting to see how this bottling develops in future vintages. (AG) 92+ Inner quote mark (9/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cherry and strawberry flavors combine with tobacco and black tea notes in this well-structured red. Succulent and balanced, with plenty of grip on the finish. Mouthwatering, revealing echoes of fruit, spice and iron. Drink now through 2023. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

K&L Notes

Il Grigio Gran Selezione is sourced from five vineyards that were researched and replanted in the 1990s. The rigorous selection of grapes for the Gran Selezione includes Sangiovese from three of those vineyards: Chiesamonti, Colti, and Pianaccio. Additionally, the winery notes, the blend includes indigenous grape varieties: "Abrusco, Pugnitello, Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, and Mazzese, which grow in San Felice’s Vitiarium, a renowned collection inaugurated in the 1980s and now boasting over 200 forgotten varieties, were selected to enrich the Sangiovese of Grigio Gran Selezione. The result is a rich, superbly structured wine marked by taut, elegant tannins and a broad array of complex fragrances; a wine that is the fullest expression of the terroir of San Felice."
