Tenuta Perano Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 Frescobaldi

TPCCR16

New product

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.

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. The estate covers 250 hectares, of which 52 are planted with vines which surround the dedicated winery. The vineyard is planted on steep slopes increasing to an altitude of 500 metres 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.

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.
