JS94 Really floral and attractive from the outset, displaying aromas of red plums, blackcurrants, black cherries, poppies, cedar, Chinese spices, paprika and crushed stones. The palate is very linear and focused with tight tannins and refreshing acidity, carrying this through to a chewy, refined finish. Drink in 2021.
Estate Notes: Tenuta Perano 2015 is a brilliant purple wine with a floral nose dominated by violet and rosehip aromas. Blackcurrant fruity notes lead into marked spiced highlights of black pepper and nutmeg followed by underbrush and humus. The wine is fresh, complex and rich to the palate. The tannin structure is rich and dense as appropriate for the most authentic Sangiovese. The finish is persistent, harmonious and bequeaths pleasant memories of noble tobacco.
in the heart of Chianti Classico, nestled within a natural amphitheater facing southwest, exceptionally unique soil and climate conditions exist for the production of this Riserva Chianti Classico. Here, five hundred meters above sea level, the Tenuta Perano vineyards in Gaiole in Chianti offers all the characteristics for Sangiovese to find its most elegant and personable expression. Fruit of a careful handpicked selection, the wine is aged in Slavonia oak barrels for 24 months.
Much of the merit for this extraordinary vintage is to be attributed to the particularly hot summer, which featured only two minor rainfalls in the middle of August. The harvest, which began on September 8 with exceptionally healthy and high- quality Merlot grapes, continued on April 21 for Sangiovese. 2015 was impressive for the intensity of aromas and rich tannins made soft and velvety by the previous month’s showers.
