Strada al Sasso is our-flagship, single-vineyard, single-block Sangiovese. Planted in 1998, this exceptional micro-cru is located in a wind-swept corner of our estate. It features high-density spacing, careful matching of rootstocks and clones to the soils, and low yields. This is the most intense, brooding, concentrated, complex wine we produce at Tenuta di Arceno. The aromatics are saturated with dark fruit, dark-roasted coffee beans and violets. The palate is dense and commanding with dried plums, nutmeg, earth, wet slate, firm acids and fine tannins. While this wine drinks well in its youth, it is built to evolve and improve over the next decade or more.
96 Points, James Suckling
Lots of licorice and blackberry aromas with violets and hints of fresh leather. Full-bodied with very fine-grained tannins that give the wine length and depth. So well crafted and long. Really excellent. Elegance with power. Drinkable now, but give it a year or three to show its really excellence. Best after 2023.
