A salty, savory version, this red offers woodsy underbrush and loam notes, along with sanguine, iron, leather and meaty cherry aromas and flavors. Lively and balanced, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and herbs. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now.

The entry-level Tenuta di Arceno 2020 Chianti Classico reveals ripe cherry, rosemary, potting soil and blue iris. This is a lively expression with medium fruit weight and easy-drinking appeal. It plays its cards well in terms of freshness and accessibility. Within the greater Arceno portfolio, this wine hits that sweet spot between being approachable and pleasurable. Best After 2022

Perfumed with sweet red and blue fruit, the 2020 Chianti Classico is Sangiovese with the addition of 15% Merlot. Forward with primary fruit, pressed flowers, and wet stone, it Is round and supple on the palate, with a silky-smooth texture, notes of black cherry and mocha, and crunchy red plum on the finish. This versatile and clean style of red can be shared across the table with a variety of dishes.

Tenuta di Arceno, nestled in the heart of Italy's Chianti region, is a historical gem in the world of winemaking. This distinguished estate, owned by the Jackson Family Wines Group, traces its roots back to the early 16th century when the Del Taja family began assembling a collection of Chianti vineyards. Today, it boasts an expansive 1000-hectare (2500-acre) property. Tenuta di Arceno was already a winemaking center in the 16th century. Located in the basin of two rivers – the Ambra, which flows towards Florence in the north; and the Ombrone, which flows towards Grosseto in the south – this area was once the center of Etruscan civilisation. In honor of its past, the reference to "Arceno" derives from the Etruscan word "archè", which means "point of... Read More
The Chianti Blend is a revered and classic combination of grape varieties that forms the backbone of wines hailing from the Chianti region and other parts of picturesque Tuscany. At the heart of this blend lies the beloved Sangiovese grape, the very essence of Tuscany's viticultural identity. Chianti's stringent appellation regulations mandate a minimum of 70 percent Sangiovese in the blend, with Chianti Colli Senesi and Chianti Classico pushing the bar to 75 and 80 percent, respectively. This core grape is artfully complemented by smaller proportions of lesser-known Tuscan varieties like Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, and Mammolo. The resulting wines, steeped in tradition, exude a captivating bouquet of red fruits, violets, dried herbs, and hints of bitter cherries. The regions... Read More
