Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico 2020

Tuscany, ItalySangiovese is tipped with 15% merlot in this fleshy, dark fruited and brooding CC, with ten months in 2-3-year-old French oak giving some baking spice seasoning to the blackcurrant, black cherry ruling the full-bodied palate. Lashes of black licorice, hoisin, and worked leather are woven throughout, while sticky tannins wrap this to a warming, bitter cocoa finish. A bit rustic, this would do best with a fall/winter stew.Tasted: 26 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
