While distinctly different from California wines, it is rather smooth but uninteresting to no finish...but for $12/bottle can't be beaten.
Wine Maker Notes
The property is comprised of a medieval village with a modern winery, cellar, and a world-class hotel & restaurant. San Felice grows 278 (161 red) different vine varieties in an experimental 2-hectare nursery-vineyard called "VITIARIUM", from which the winery has had exciting results with a promising new varietal, the Pugnitello grape. They have since dedicated 8 hectares of vineyard to this varietal. San Felice also owns “Campogiovanni” a 65 ha estate in Montalcino (20 hectares of vineyard) that they acquired Jan.1st, 1984, where they produce Brunello di Montalcino (14 ha) & Rosso di Montalcino (6 ha). In 1993, San Felice started to develop the first 10 ha of vineyards (total 1,100 ha) at the “Perolla” property in Maremma (south-east of Massa Marittima). Now the vineyards cover 50 hectares.
A wine for all dishes, from Tuscan-style charcuterie to tomato-sauced baked pasta dishes and risottos, and, for the adventurous, with bouillabaisse and fish stews as well.
