Frescobaldi Tenuta Perano Rialzi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2015

An elegant, velvety wine full of rich, ripe blackcurrant and blueberry complemented by spicy notes of black pepper, toasted coffee bean and tobacco.

Producer Note

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. It covers 250 hectares, of which 52 are planted with vines. The vineyard is planted on steep slopes 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.

Vintage

2015 was an extraordinary vintage. The winter saw intense frost events and plenty of snow, which built water reserves to nourish the vines during the hot summer. Flowering took place in early June, with hot summer days encouraging good fruit set and véraison at the beginning of August. Much of the merit for this extraordinary vintage is attributed to the particularly hot summer, with tempering mild and breezy nights and only two minor rainfall events in the middle of August.

Vineyard

From the single vineyard ‘Rialzi’, where the Sangiovese vines are grown on the steep hillsides of Gaiole with a gradient of 15 to 20 degrees, up to 500 metres elevation. 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 keep the vines ventilated; the Tramontana wind blows from the north during the night and daytime breezes approach from the south promoting freshness in the berries. The climate provides warm, dry summers with marked temperature differences in September. This encourages an extended ripening period, concentrating the fruit flavours, while retaining balancing acidity. The soil is notable for its rich stone content and is free draining. The fruit is hand-harvested at optimum maturity.

Winemaking

Meticulous selection took place, followed by temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Maceration on the skins allowed excellent polyphenolic extraction prior to gentle pressing. The young wine was aged for 24 months in new French oak barrels, followed by further bottle ageing in the cellar, prior to release.

Tasting Note

Rich, ripe blackcurrant and blueberry notes are complemented by spicy hints of black pepper, toasted coffee bean and tobacco. The richness and depth are in perfect harmony with fine, integrated tannins through to a long, opulent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Steak, roasted beef, game, truffle risotto or with aged cheese, such as Parmesan.
