Frescobaldi Tenuta Perano Chianti Classico Riserva 2015 - Wine

Tasting Notes

A superb expression of the Sangiovese grape, this brilliant purple wine delivers floral aromatics dominated by violet and rosehip. Blackcurrant undertones are complemented by spicy highlights of black pepper and nutmeg. Complex and rich on the palate with hints of fine tobacco, through to a long and harmonious finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were vinified maintaining the maximum respect for the purity of fruit. The wine was aged for 24 months in Slavonian oak casks.

Critics Reviews

Vinous 92+pts (2015) - The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Perano Rialzi is a rich, heady wine, with exotic spice, citrus, iron, leather and cedar notes that lend aromatic depth. Resonant and creamy on the palate, the Gran Selezione has quite a bit of intensity. At the same time, it is not materially different from the straight Riserva. If anything, the tannins are a bit severe at this stage, but also nothing a bit more time in bottle won't take care of.

Producer Profile

Tenuta Perano is an immaculate estate located in Gaiole, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region and is the latest addition to the collection of estates owned by the Frescobaldi family. It covers 250 hectares, of which 52 are planted with vines. The vineyard is planted on steep slopes and is situated on a natural amphitheatre profile, which captures and amplifies the sunlight onto the vines. This unique setting combines elevation, exposure and a natural topography to produce wines with intensely fruit driven aromas and a great tannic structure, which are enveloped in elegance.
