A wine which caught my eye from Marchesi de Frescobaldi is the relatively newly acquired Tenuta Perano property. Buying this vineyard site was a very smart move, especially thanks to the gleaming white Albarese rocky soil present in the vineyard. The soil gives an unmistakable mineral note to the wine that adds sharpness, focus and brilliant linearity. With two vintages reviewed, Monica Larner (The Wine Advocate) speaks very highly of this wine. Comments like “a game-changer for Frescobaldi” and “This wine is a delight to behold” I think it is a wine to follow. Added to this and unlike a lot of 2016 vintage Italian wines, this is in its drinking window of 2021 – 2035.
With this in mind, I am very pleased to offer the following. Available in stock for immediate delivery with free Mainland UK delivery on 12 bottles or more.
Cases 6 x 75cl, 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Perano Rialzi, Frescobaldi @ £175 per case 6 In Bond. (£37.67 bottle Inc VAT)
95 points….”This is a crowning achievement in the Frescobaldi portfolio, underlining the winery’s commitment to leaner, fresher and more elegant wines. The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Tenuta Perano Rialzi is a game-changer for Frescobaldi. This wine is a delight to behold. It shows dark fruit, wild cherry, crushed lilac and chalky white stone. The oak is more prominent on the Gran Selezione, and I am slightly more partial to the Riserva expression from a versatility and food-pairing point of view. That said, this is a beautiful wine from all points of view, from bouquet to the lasting intensity of the mouthfeel.”- Monica Larner The Wine Advocate
