San Felice

MEET THE WINEMAKERS 

 

 

The climate in Chianti is classically Continental: hot summers followed by very cold winters with modest rainfall. The vineyards of Montalcino are closer to the coast and experience a Mediterranean climate with higher rainfall and more moderate seasonal variation. The main grapes grown by San Felice are Sangiovese and Trebbiano Toscano in their Chianti Classico vineyards, and Brunello in Montalcino. The entire estate is sustainably farmed with precision viticulture, solar panels and a biomass reactor installed to help mitigate the estate's impact on the environment.
