Winemaker Notes

The nose exudes ripe fruit and floral notes of violets and roses, with undertones of cypress and cedar. The palate is lush and full, chewy and laden with fruit. Supple tannins and moderate acidity allow the fruit flavors to shine through, revealing layers of red fruit – cherry and plum – with notes of honeysuckle. A long finish gives way to herbal and spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and lingering black tea.

    Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

I like the ripeness and energy to this Chianti Classico with a plum, walnut and dried-meat undertone. Medium body, round and juicy tannins and a savory finish. Hints of burnt orange in the center palate. Flavorful finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Perfect for a quintessential Tuscan pappardelle al cinghiale with shaved pecorino, the Tenuta di Arceno 2018 Chianti Classico is a steady, fruity and fresh expression that delivers on and exceeds the basic promises of the appellation. Dark fruit and wild cherry segue to leather, spice and earth. The wine (made with Sangiovese and a small part Merlot for extra softness) offers a classic window onto the warm and sunny Castelnuovo Berardenga village on the southern side of the appellation.
