Peter Maude Fine Wines

2016, Frescobaldi Tunuta Perano Riserva Chianti Classico

$70

Blend: Sangiovese, Merlot.

This Riserva, from the highly regarded 2016 vintage, has spent 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels plus further time in bottle. Rich, ripe aromas of black berries, cherry, wood and fragrant spice lead to a palate structured by super-fine, integrated chocolatey tannins and bright, focussed acidity. It all melds together excellently, with the black and red fruits displaying a meaty edge on the mid-palate, followed by dried herbs and plenty of black pepper and sweet spices on the long finish. 92/100 James Button, Decanter. 

Drinking Window: 2021 - 2028.
