Description

With more than 30 generations and 700 years behind them, the Frescobaldi family are one of the great winemaking families of Tuscany. Tenuta Perano is born on the hills of Gaiole. A gorgeous amphitheatre, 500m above sea level orientated towards the sun, a unique site producing intense wines with robust tannins, yet retaining an elegance. Chianti Classico Riserva means lower crop levels, riper grapes and longer ageing, producing a fuller bodied and more complex wine. One to cellar.

Smells

An intriguing and delicious nose showing hints of anise, red and black plums, cured meat, sour cherry, sage, cinnamon, and cigar box notes.

Tastes

incredible depth, fruit concentration and tannin structure resulting in a very classy wine, one for the cellar for sure. Dark plumy fruits, cedar, sage, and cigar box nuances, giving an alluring array of flavours with salivating tannins that will benefit from a few years (8-10 years) in the cellar. Or if you can’t resist, decant. Made for slow cooked beef cheeks.
