Brand Description


SAN FELICE is located in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, a few kilometres from Siena, in the heart of Chianti Classico, and it is owned by Allianz since the late ‘70s. Surrounding the tiny medieval hamlet and the winery complex are 140 hectares of vineyards, 80% planted with Sangiovese, a testimony to the commitment of San Felice to the production of Chianti Classico with a manifest bond to its local terroir, as shown by its ‘Il Grigio’ and ‘Poggio Rosso’ wines. At the same time, San Felice has won recognition as a very innovative producer and committed researcher. Eloquent examples are its historic wine Vigorello, the precursor to the Supertuscan wines, and Pugnitello, made from the ancient Tuscan grape of the same name, which San Felice re-discovered and experimented with over many years, in collaboration with the University of Florence
