Review: 2017 Frescobaldi Tenuta Perano Chianti Classico DOCG

We reviewed the inaugural vintage of this wine — the 2015 vintage — back in 2019. Now we’re back with another look at Tenuta Perano, a DOCG wine “born on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti from vineyards 500 meters above sea level.”

Again, it’s an extremely dry wine, dusted with notes of balsamic that, at least, now feel somewhat tempered in comparison to the 2015 bottling. This leaves room for more cherry notes, tea leaf, and a chocolate note that builds toward the finish — though the entire construction still feels a bit scattered, leaning heavily on herbal elements, which come across on the conclusion as slightly green.
