An intense and elegant Chianti Classico with floral aromas and fruity notes of wild blackberry, raspberry and cherry. Classic with a pleasant walnut note on the finish.
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. Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and innovation.
An extraordinary vintage. The winter of 2015 saw intense frost and plenty of snow. Spring brought a rise in temperature which encouraged vine growth. Flowering took place in early June, with véraison starting at the beginning of August. The summer was particularly hot with mild and breezy nights and two minor rainfalls in mid August, which allowed the grapes to reach perfect phenolic ripeness.
The grapes are grown on the steep hillsides of Gaiole with a gradient of 15 to 20 degrees, up to 500 metres above sea level. The vines are planted with a southern exposure, in an amphitheatre shaped vineyard which helps to maximise the exposure to the sun and concentrates the heat onto the vines. The topography and altitude help to keep the vines ventilated with the Tramontana wind which blows from the north during the night, and daytime breezes approaching from the south. The climate provides warm, dry summers with marked temperature differences in September, which helps to extend the ripening period and concentrate the fruit flavours, while retaining balancing acidity. The soil is notable for its rich stone content and is free draining.
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 a combination of stainless steel and oak barriques.
A refined and elegant Chianti Classico that delivers floral aromas along with fruity notes of wild blackberry, raspberry and cherry. Complex nuances of eucalyptus, thyme, graphite and spicy pink pepper lead to the rich, velvety palate. Intense and persistent, with a pleasant walnut note on the finish.
