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

Darkly spiced and earthy on entry with plum and black currant fruit. Dry and sandy textured in the mouth, this has a rich mineral palate and tart red fruit flavors with a medium finish of herb and cranberry.

Savory, light barnyard notes with rich mineral earth and fresh cherry fruit on the nose. On the palate this is bright and cheerful to start with a floral frame and cherry and cranberry fruit notes that are nicely balanced but bring in classic Chianti tannin and earth towards the warm finish.

Resinous forest, cherry, strawberry, and ceder. Medium to Full bodied with bright acidity. For centuries, the finest Chianti has been produced from within the Chianti Classico region in the hills of Tuscany. Our estate, Tenuta di Arceno, lies among these hills and is home to this special Chianti Classico wine

This Chianti Classico Riserva has a powerful nose of deep, ripe fruit, dominated by raspberries and black cherries. Underlying the fruit are hints of floral notes, especially violets, which slowly surface and finish with tones of forest and wild mint. This is a silky wine with bright acidity and firm tannins. Explosive flavors, reminding one of eating blackberries and blueberries off the vine, give a wonderful fruit and vine character. The finish lingers with cherries and white chocolate and enduring notes of cedar.
