Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico Riserva 2017 (3 Bottles)
This Riserva recently received Tre Bicchieri or “3 Glasses”, the top award in Vini d’Italia Guide 2021.

Just 2% of the wines entered were awarded the Tre Bichhieri rating. Uneven weather, including frost, resulted in a very low yield in 2017. What survived, many wines have concentration and vibrant acidity such as this Riserva. Red cherry/raspberry fruit, and tobacco, liquorice, and vanilla notes. The tannins are very fine. Persistent fruit with long freshness. Comprises 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 10 months in French oak. Needs decanting 60 to 90 minutes for the wine to open up.
