Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

2015 was a beautiful year for growing wine, almost perfect. Winter was wet, storing some vital groundwater for the hot months ahead. Bud break at the end of March followed by nice Flowering weather were ideal for a perfect crop size...not too much, not too little. The summer was dry and hot, with July being particularly dangerous for plant stress. Luckily in the first weeks of August arrivedsome much-needed rain with no other significant rain until October. The Sangiovese harvest began September 22nd and fininished October 10th. Perfect cool nights with warm sunny days allowed us to pick slowly, ensuring optimumripeness of every block. the nose exudes ripe plums with spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also an herbal tone of bay leaf and cypress. the mouthfeel hassoft and supple tannins with very approachable acids. Flavors explode with lavender, tart raspberries and hints of white pepper. the acids carry the finish oflicorice and lingering ripe tangerine. 2015 will be remembered as a great year.-Winery Notes
