Chianti Classico DOCG
Chianti Classico Tenuta Perano is born on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti from vineyards 500 meters above sea level. 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.
The 2016 winter season at the Perano Estate was marked by abundant precipitation, including some snow and rather low temperatures. The harsh winter gave way to a reasonably mild spring. The warm spring days awoke the vegetation from its winter slumber, leading to regular sprouting and encouraging the development of magnificent foliage. By the first week of June, flowering had already occurred.
The hot, sunny, breezy summer days created the best possible opportunity for photosynthesis. The veraison saw the Tenuta Perano bunches change colour in the month of August, a period during which two beneficial rains occurred, allowing the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and succulence.
2016 bestowed a series of extraordinary wines, both in the intensity of their aromas and their structural richness.
