Grape variety
85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot
TASTING NOTES
The 2019 Chianti Classico displays aromas of black cherry, orange peel, and subtle notes of cedar. The entrance to the palate is bright and invigorating – as one would expect a Chianti Classico to be – then slowly softens; revealing flavors of red raspberries with the earthy signature of Sangiovese. The finish concludes with spice notes of white pepper with hints of mint and licorice. The 2019 vintage had a late start. A cold winter with bountiful rain allowed the vines to sleep and for the ground water to be replenished. The cold weather carried through into spring, resulting in some rain in May that posed a challenge for flowering. The summer welcomed us with pleasant temperatures that heated up in August but were moderated by strategic rain. Fall consisted of beautiful warm days and cool nights, allowing for perfect ripening balance. Harvest began on September 14th with Merlot and ended on October 23rd with Sangiovese.

Tenuta di Arceno

Tenuta di Arceno Discover Tenuta di Arceno in Tuscany and its fine wines in our online store Tenuta di Arceno is located on the hills of Chianti Classico , precisely in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The estate was first owned by the Sienese Taja family and then passed to the Piccolomini, a historic Tuscan family that was very influential in Siena. In 1994 it was bought by Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke . From a clear Tuscan lineage, the wines of Tenuta di Arceno own a level of richness, concentration and character comparable to the best wines in the world. The 92 hectares of vineyards are located on rocky hills at an altitude between 300 and 560 above see level. The company has always cultivated the most famous native vine of Tuscany, Sangiovese , but also experimenting with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot . The oenological team, that consistt of two winemakers, Lawrence Cronin and Pierre Seillan , brought great sensitivity to the production of the six wines produced. On one hand we find the Chianti Classico wines, which express their best in the Gran Selezione Strada al Sasso . On the other hand, Bordeaux blended wines, such as il Fauno by Arcanum, Valadorna and Arcanum , made from Cabernet Franc and the Merlot.
