Frescobaldi Tenuta Perano Chianti Classico 2018

An intense and elegant Chianti Classico with floral
aromas and fruity notes of wild blackberry, raspberry and
cherry. Classic with a pleasant walnut note on the finish.
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.
Gambero Rosso awarded Frescobaldi with the prestigious ‘Tre Bicchieri Winery of the
Year Award 2020’, in recognition of its uncompromising commitment to quality and
innovation.
Vintage
Winter 2018 was a harsh season with frost, snow and significant rainfall. The mild
temperatures and some spring rain caused the foliage to form quickly and budding
took place as usual. The vines flowered during the first week of June, followed by sunny
days and warm temperatures fostering good fruit set. Véraison took place around 10th
August, due to the optimal conditions of heat during the day mitigated by good night
ventilation. This splendid vintage is attributed to the hot summer, marked by rain storms
in July and in early August. Harvest began on 10th September, with grapes of
exceptional health and quality, producing soft and velvety wines with great intensity of
aromas and richness of tannins.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown on the steep hillsides of Gaiole with a gradient of 15 to 20
degrees, up to 500 metres above sea level. 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 help
to keep the vines ventilated with the Tramontana wind which blows from the north
during the night, and daytime breezes approaching from the south. The climate
provides warm, dry summers with marked temperature differences in September, which
helps to extend the ripening period and concentrate the fruit flavours, while retaining
balancing acidity. The soil is notable for its rich stone content and is free draining.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were vinified maintaining the
maximum respect for the purity of fruit. The wine was aged for 24 months in a
combination of stainless steel and oak barriques.
