A new estate in Chianti Classico, Frescobaldi's Tenuta Perano is on a roll. Their 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Tenuta Perano is impeccably balanced and rich, yet the wine remains bright and lifted at the same time. You get that proverbial twofold punch of power and elegance that is such a special and happy achievement. Dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spice and crushed limestone emerge carefully from the bouquet. I must say, I prefer this wine to a great majority of Brunello samples recently tasted.
