Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Arceno|
2016 was an expressive and elegant vintage. There was ample sunshine and just enough rain to hold off harvest, giving the fruit more precious time on the vine. Warm days and cool nights produced wines with ripe fruit flavors, vibrant acidity and explosive aromatics. The nose exudes black cherries, fresh cut roses and cedar. The tannins are supple, held in place by firm acids. Flavors of ripe plums, caramel, cinnamon and earth tones fill the palate. The finish shows black tea, cloves and lingering bay leaf. 2016 will be remembered well, and has the structure and acids to age beautifully. Pair with pappardelle with wild boar, aged pecorino, and Florentine steak.
