Il Grigio Olio E.V. Dop Chianti Classico

San Felice has 16,000 olive trees largely the Frantoio variety, but with some Moraiolo and Leccino as well.They are trained to very low yelds that average 1 litre of oil per tree. The olives are picked by hand during November and pressed within 24 hours. The oil is then filtered and bottled. This oil eloquently expresses its Chianti pedigree. A sparkling green hue, it is refined and elegant, redolent of pungent artichoke, and just the right degreeof piquant, bitterish tang on the palate.
