About Frescobaldi Tenuta Perano 2016 Chianti Classico

Frescobaldi's property in Chianti Classico Tenuta Perano, is located on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti with vineyards 1500 feet above sea level. The south, southwestern exposure and the amphitheatre-shaped layout magnifies the exposure to the sun and concentrates the heat from it. The combination of elevation, exposure, and the shape and slope of the vineyards offers and extraordinarily unique quality setting that results in brilliant purple wines possessed of intensely fruity aromas and a great tannic structure rife with elegance.

Once harvested by hand, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Maceration on the skins with frequent pumping over allowed for perfect  extraction of the polyphenolic substances, providing just the right color intensity and typical structure. The wine was then partially aged in wood casks, delicately enriching the bouquet. After an additional ageing period in the bottle, Tenuta Perano 2016 was ready to make its debut.

James Suckling scored this 93 points saying "This shows beautiful energy and brightness with black-cherry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium body. Tight and focused."

Wine Spectator scored this 92 points saying "A beautiful expression of ripe black cherry, black currant and violet notes, accented by graphite, tobacco and tar hints. Shows muscle, with some grip on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030."

This wine was featured on the cover of the May 2020 issue of Decanter Magazine. It scored a whopping 95 points and the tasters' comments included "Dense on the palate with silky ripe fruit along with perfectly integrated structure. A great wine with great potential." "Very beautiful and engaging, long, concentrated and intense."
