Tenuta Perano Riserva 2016 immediately presents a brilliant ruby red color with violet reflections. Its bouquet is complex and intense. Floral scents, ranging from sweet violet to dog-rose immediately pervade the nose; fruity notes soon make their entrance, recalling blackcurrant and blueberry. Over time, the emphasis shifts to tertiary notes evoking nutmeg and black pepper, as well as cocoa powder. A balsamic sensation gives infinite elegance to the wine. It surprises in the mouth with its freshness, persistence and length. The tannic texture is dense, as is appropriate for Sangiovese from the most suitable soils. It closes with hints of noble tobacco and leather. The finish is long and harmonious.

A new estate in Chianti Classico, Frescobaldi's Tenuta Perano is on a roll. Their 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Tenuta Perano is impeccably balanced and rich, yet the wine remains bright and lifted at the same time. You get that proverbial twofold punch of power and elegance that is such a special and happy achievement. Dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spice and crushed limestone emerge carefully from the bouquet. I must say, I prefer this wine to a great majority of Brunello samples recently tasted.

Pure and saturated flavors of black currant, blackberry and violet are the hallmarks of this red. Harmonious and approachable despite the solidly built structure, featuring freshness and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, earth and iron. Best from 2021 through 2036. 250 cases imported.

Aromas of black-skinned fruit, toasted nut and scorched earth mix with a whiff of tobacco leaf. It's firmly structured but elegant, offering ripe Marasca cherry, blackberry, brown pepper and a hint of orange zest alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. It closes on a coffee note.
