Professional Wine Reviews for Tenuta Perano Chianti Classico 2015

Rated 93 by 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.
Rated 90 by 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.

Winery Tenuta Perano

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany is probably Italy's most important and widely respected wine region, with a history which stretches back almost three thousand years, and a set of fine grape varietals which produce some of the most delicious quality white and red wines in the world. Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes are grown all over this expansive region, and the way they are handled, aged and processed varies from town to town. The beautiful hot climate of Tuscany helps these grapes reach full ripeness, despite the fact the soil of the region is generally problematic for the vintners who work there. Despite this, there is a dedication to quality and flavor in Tuscany which is more or less unmatched anywhere else in Italy, and a great mix of strong tradition and willingness to experiment and think outside the box which has been a wonderful recipe for success in the region.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
