2016 Frescobaldi Chianti Classico Perano Riserva (750ml)

From Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy


Pure and saturated flavors of black currant, blackberry and violet are the hallmarks of this red. Harmonious and approachable despite the solidly built structure, featuring freshness and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, earth and iron. Best from 2021 through 2036. 250 cases imported.

This is a decadent Perano with lots of dried dark fruit, ranging from blackberries to dried elderberries and vanilla. Full body, plenty of plush dark fruit, muscular tannins and a fruit-driven finish. Drink from 2024.

93 points, James Suckling (Nov 2019)

Aromas of black-skinned fruit, toasted nut and scorched earth mix with a whiff of tobacco leaf. It's firmly structured but elegant, offering ripe Marasca cherry, blackberry, brown pepper and a hint of orange zest alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. It closes on a coffee note.
