|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Tenuta di Arceno|
2015 was the perfect warm vintage- not too hot, just right. The nose immediately releases tones of honeysuckle and strawberry jam, finishing with a herbal tone of rosemary and cypress. On the palate, the power of this wine impresses. There is an explosion of flavors, all framed tightly by frrm bright acids. Flavors are dominated by tart cranberries and raspberries, giving way to the ever-elusive lush blueberry tones. The flnish is dominated by vanilla bean with lingering black pepper and orange peel. this is an exciting year for Sangiovese and has the potential to age 15-20 years. Foodpairings: Wild boar pappardelle, Asiago, Manchego, roasted chicken and tortellini with Bolognese.
