The Wine
The nose exudes exotic spices, licorice and ripe black cherries. On the palate, there is a big, full mouthfeel with nuances of cinnamon, dried cranberries, and candied orange peel. The finish is long and persistent with hints of caramel.

Tenuta di Arceno is quintessential Tuscany. Our property covers 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) of rolling hills, lush green forests, ancient Cypress trees, sun-drenched fields, olive groves, vineyards and medieval stone castles. It’s not unusual to see wild boar roaming the property. The wines we produce are every bit as impressive as their origin. While clearly Tuscan in lineage, they possess a level of richness, concentration and character that is comparable to the world’s finest. In addition to our wines, we also craft an estate olive oil that is available in our tasting room.
When wine entrepreneur Jess Jackson and Vigneron Pierre Seillan first visited Tenuta di Arceno in 1994, they immediately recognized the potential of this historic estate. Over the next two decades, our team replanted the vineyards into tiny micro-crus, updated the winery and elevated the viticulture and winemaking practices to first-class standards. Today, Tenuta di Arceno is widely considered one of the premier estates in the Chianti Classico region.
