New with Ewineasia | Tenuta di Arceno

terroir_0Established in 1994, Tenuta di Arceno and Arcanum come from one estate that shows two very distinct expressions of wine. Tenuta di Arceno is a producer of estate-derived wines located in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, while Arcanum showcases Bordeaux varietals.

The winery is situated in the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga on one of the region’s most historic estates, comprised of 2,500 acres, of which only 220 acres are planted to vines.

The vineyards of Arceno possess an enviable diversity of elevations, facings, soils, and mesoclimates, a situation that is ideal for the cultivation of Sangiovese as well as the “international” varieties – Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon

Tenuta di Arceno is quintessential Tuscany. Their 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 they 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. Today, Tenuta di Arceno is widely considered one of the premier estates in the Chianti Classico region.
