Perano Rialzi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2016

Product description

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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 the bouquet to the lasting intensity of the mouthfeel. Drink date: 2021-2035.
