Chianti Classico DOCG
Chianti Classico Tenuta Perano is born on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti from vineyards 500 meters above sealevel. The
south, southwestern exposure and the amphitheatre-shaped layout magnifies the exposure to the sun and concentrates the
heat from it. The combination of elevation, exposure, and the shape and slope of the vineyards offers and extraordinarily
unique quality setting that results in brilliant purple wines possessed of intensely fruity aromas and a great tannic
structure rife with elegance.
Vinification and ageing
Once harvested by hand, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel vats at acontrolled temperature. Maceration on the
skins with frequent pumping over allowed for perfect extraction of the polyphenolic substances, providing just the right
colour intensity and typical structure. The wine was then partially aged in wooden containers, delicately enriching the
bouquet with tertiary aromas. After an additional ageing period in the bottle, Tenuta Perano 2016 was ready to make its
Tenuta Perano stands out for its bright purple colour. Its bouquet alternates between floral aromas and notes of wild
berries and cherry. Balsamic nuances and asubtle spiciness follow. The freshness and tannic texture add an element of
surprise, elegantly caressing and slowly filling the palate. The intense and persistent finish leaves the palate clean and fresh.
