Product description

Behind every Frescobaldi wine lies the passion of agronomists and oenologists, who know their vineyards and terroirs down to the finest detail. Their art, creating quality wines, requires the iron rule of respect. Respect for tradition, which guide them, even in the midst of innovation or avant-garde solutions. Respect for Tuscany, the living land, to be cultivated in harmony and serenity. Respect for each individual terroir, borne of a unique combination of soil, altitude and microclimate, each creating a wine with its own matchless personality.

Winemaker Notes... Tenuta Perano 2015 is a brilliant purple wine with a floral nose dominated by violet and rose hip aromas. Blackcurrant fruity notes lead into marked spiced highlights of black pepper and nutmeg followed by underbrush and humus. The wine is fresh, complex and rich to the palate. The tannin structure is rich and dense as appropriate for the most authentic Sangiovese. The finish is persistent, harmonious and bequeaths pleasant memories of noble tobacco.

94 Points James Suckling... Floral and attractive from the outset, displaying aromas of red plums, blackcurrants, black cherries, poppies, cedar, paprika and crushed stones. The palate is very linear and focused with tight tannins and refreshing acidity, carrying this through to a chewy, refined finish.

93 Points - Wine Spectator... Cherry, raspberry, leather and earth flavors pick up wild herb accents as this develops from beginning to end. Closed today, but all the components are in the right place. Best from 2023 through 2038.

90 Points - Decanter... Leather, violet and red fruit aromas and flavours with a focused, racy and expressive palate. A lovely wine.
