San Felice's cultural roots go back to the region's ancient Etruscan origins. The property passed through the hands of many owners, including the Church and various local families, eventually falling under the supervision of the late managing director, Enzo Morganti. He restructured and transformed San Felice, concentrating on high quality winemaking and systematic scientific research. Today, San Felice continues this tradition under winemaker Leonardo Bellacini. Respect for tradition is united with avant-garde viticultural research and experimentation, carried out on 44 acres of vineyards in conjunction with the Department of Horticulture of the University of Florence. In 1968 San Felice released Vigorello, the first Super-Tuscan, years before they became fashionable. Both traditional Chianti Classico and innovative Tuscan blends, all of which are estate grown and bottled, round out the portfolio.

Tasting notes
Aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and sweet violets. Medium-body, with soft round tannins.

 Wine Spectator 89 points (Sep 30 2012)
A firm, dense style, featuring cherry, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. This has grip and staying power on the long finish and shows balance overall. Best from 2013 through 2020. 25,000 cases made. –BS

Technical notes
Sourced from estate vineyards planted on Galestro, a schist based soil common to Tuscany. Fermented on its skins in stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days, the wine aged for 10-12 months in French oak followed by an additional two months of bottle aging.
