San Felice is also a renowned wine estate where creative talents have produced great wines from the beginning, including Vigorello, the first Super Tuscan ever made in Chianti Classico, in 1968. With 140 hectares – 85% of which are planted to Sangiovese – San Felice continually confirms its ability to create Chianti Classico that is fully representative of the local territory, including Il Grigio Riserva and our two Gran Selezione wines, Il Grigio and Poggio Rosso. Research and experimentation have always been part of San Felice’s DNA; in fact, over the years, a research project carried out with the Universities of Florence and Pisa have culminated in an important experiment with indigenous Tuscan varieties. Among them is Pugnitello, an ancient and highly prized variety that has become one of San Felice’s iconic wines.
With the acquisition of the Campogiovanni estate in Montalcino, San Felice began producing a Brunello di Montalcino that after just a few years was named among Wine Spectator’s Top 100. More recently, in 2016, San Felice purchased six hectares in Bolgheri, leading to the birth of the Bell’Aja brand. With these two additions, San Felice has affirmed its place as a reference point in the world of wine, both domestically and internationally.
