Notes from the Winemaker:
Chianti Classico Tenuta Perano is born on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti from vineyards 500 meters 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.

Tasting Notes

Tenuta Perano 2015 is a brilliant purple wine with a floral nose enhanced by fruity notes of wild blackberry, raspberry and cherry, which lead into balsamic highlights of eucalyptus and thyme accompanied by mineral touches of graphite and spicy pink pepper. The tannic structure is typical of Chianti Classico, it caresses the palate leaving it clean and fresh. The intense and persistent finishes leaves a pleasant walnut nuance.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points & #36 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
The core black cherry and blackberry flavors are shaded by iron, petrol and tar elements, with wild Tuscan scrub accents. This is powerful and tannic, and needs some time to integrate. Best from 2021 through 2033. 2,000 cases imported." - BS (Sept 2020)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"This shows real freshness and character with crushed stones, blackberry pie, vanilla and tobacco in addition to the lemon undertones. The palate shows lots of depth but also really excellent balance. Full body, structured tannins and acidity that really drives this through to the chewy finish. Drink in 2020." (30 Jun, 2018)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This wine comes from Frescobaldi's new estate in Gaiole in Chianti. The 2015 Chianti Classico is a wine with a firm backbone and bright acidity (the vines are planted over 550 meters above sea level, and you taste lots of crispness as a result). This Chianti Classico is composed of 90% Sangiovese and other red grapes, including Merlot, Colorino, Canaiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Beyond the bright cherry and wild berry aromas are elegant mineral tones of granite and flint. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in new and neutral oak." - Monica Larner (Oct 2018)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:

"The 2015 Tenuta Perano offers a gracious, mid-weight expression of Sangiovese from Gaiole. A burst of sweet red cherry, flowers and new oak gives this pretty, lifted wine considerable immediacy as well as fine overall appeal." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2019)
