Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy
Considered a legendary vintage for its small yields, 2017 produced intense, concentrated wines with vibrant acidity. The wine has powerful fruit and incredible depth. On the nose, the wine demonstrates a playful banter between fruit and herbal tones with aromas of ripe cherry, violets, cedar and herbs jumping out of the glass; it shows a wine that is savory with soft fruit around a twisting chain of acidity. The palate follows with flavors of blueberry, vanilla bean and sweet mint, with bright acidity still carrying the tasting experience. Soft tannins bring the finish to tones of white pepper, black licorice and Tenuta di Arceno’s signature orange peel.
94 Points, James Suckling
A creamy, polished red with blueberry, fresh-plum and some floral character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Reserved and refined. Linear freshness to this.
