WSI93+ JS92 Plenty of raspberry and dark currant character on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Serious upgrade in quality here. Drink or hold.
Winemaker Notes: A careful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah, is a rich, intense wine that is modern in style yet eloquently expressive of the growing area it represents. Full-bodied and brilliant, Terre More 2015 is a deep, rich ruby color. Quite varied to the nose, the wine reveals fruity notes of plums and currants that give way to spiced and balsamic notes of vanilla and liquorice. In the mouth it is soft and enveloping, with fine and elegant tannins that blend well with the wine’s structure. Fresh, thanks to its elegant acidity, it possesses a very long finish that leaves a fruity and sweet aftertaste. Pair with grilled meats, first courses of pasta with meat sauce or tomato sauce, or cheese-topped pizzas.
n 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.
