Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico
Located in the Castelnuovo Berardenga portion of the Chianti Classico (or the historical Chianti) region within the much larger delineated as “Chianti”, Arceno is both traditional and modern, if a bit more contemporary in its embrace of Bordeaux varieties. Here the region’s grape, Sangiovese, has 15% Merlot added to it, gaining both some muscle and power (Tuscan Merlot is that, believe me) but also a sense of flavor familiarity from that grape too. This is one of those wines that we recommend not only because of Arceno’s excellence and the great reviews but because the 2018 vintage is universally considered to be ideal.
