A full-bodied, aromatic Italian red wine made from the classic Sangiovese grape. Notes of dark plums, blackberries, smoke, dark spices. Juicy, mouth-watering acidity for tangy tomato sauces.

Chianti Classico food pairings: meaty lasagne, mushroom risotto, pasta Bolognese.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Tuscany wine region, Tenuta Perano 2015 Chianti Classico is produced by Frescobaldi. Floral with bright red plums, black cherry aromas on the nose, this is a robust, but elegant Sangiovese, rich with blueberry, black currant, fine herbs, espresso and sweet dried tobacco leaf flavours with fresh acidity on the palate. Tannins are firm, structured. Good now, better in a year or two. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
