TASTING NOTES
2018 will be remembered as a truly happy harvest. Overall, the vegetative phase was constant and produced very balanced wines. The cool, rainy months of February and March postponed budding, and June and July proved to be perfect for the continuation of the season. The approach of hailstorms at the beginning of August made us hold our breath, but they always remained at least 1km away. In late August, the well-anticipated rains helped rehydrate and cool the vines. With warm days and cool nights throughout the remainder of August, optimal conditions for the harvest developed. The vintage is reminiscent of 2015 in fruit strength but 2013 in structure. The nose exudes ripe fruit and floral notes of violets and roses, with hints of cypress and cedar. The palate is lush and full, enveloping and full of fruit. Easy-going tannins, thanks also to a 10-month aging in French oak, and moderate acids allow the fruity flavors to contribute on the same level of importance, revealing layers of red fruit - cherry and plum with honeysuckle notes. A long finish leaves room for spicy and herbaceous notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and persistent black tea.

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.
