2015 Tenuta Di Arceno Chianti Riserva image

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. e summer was dry and hot, with July being particularly dangerous for plant stress. Luckily in the first weeks of August arrived some much-needed rain with no other signifcant rain until October. The Sangiovese harvest began September 22nd and fnished October 10th. Perfect cool nights with warm sunny days allowed us to pick slowly, ensuring optimum ripeness 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 has soft and supple tannins with very approachable acids. Flavors explode with lavender, tart raspberries and hints of white pepper. The acids carry the fnish of licorice and lingering ripe tangerine. 2015 will be remembered as a great year.
