Tasting Notes: This Chianti Classico showcases aromas of violets, roses, strawberries, and a hint of cypress. The immediate impact is bright and lively with an incredible flavor intensity. The flavors explode from a dark fruit center of blueberry and are framed by beautiful acids. The finish is dominated by citrus notes of blood orange, ending with lingering earthy cedar.

93 points Wine Spectator: A salty, savory version, this red offers woodsy underbrush and loam notes, along with sanguine, iron, leather and meaty cherry aromas and flavors. Lively and balanced, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and herbs. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now.

Food Pairing: Perfect for a quintessential Tuscan pappardelle al cinghiale with shaved pecorino.

The Domain: Tenuta di Arceno is an ancient Tuscan estate with a diverse portfolio of the highest quality wines across two classification levels – three wines centered on the native Sangiovese grape in the Chianti Classico DOCG collection; and three wines celebrating the estate’s international varieties under the Toscana IGT designation. The estate is situated at the southernmost edge of Chianti Classico in the butterfly-shaped commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, closest in proximity to Siena and rightfully referred to as ‘the most Senese Chianti Classico. It’s home to other world-renowned producers and stylistically distinct from counterparts to the north.

The estate is 1,000 total hectares (2,500 acres) of which 90 hectares (220 acres) are planted to vines – the remaining land is preserved for native vegetation including 50 hectares (125 acres) of olive orchards. Separated into 63 distinct vineyard blocks, the vineyards are planted to 50% Sangiovese and 50% international varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The ancient walled town of San Gusmè provides a breathtaking backdrop for the vineyards of Tenuta di Arceno.
