  For centuries, the finest Sangiovese has been produced from within the Chianti Classico region in the hills of Tuscany. Our estate, Tenuta di Arceno, lies among these hills and is home to this special Sangiovese wine. Lovingly caring for our vines, listening to the message of the soil, and respecting the expression of the fruit, allows us to create wines that reflect the special character unique to Tenuta di Arceno.


  • Deep red color
  • The wine demonstrates a playful banter between fruit and herbal tones with aromas of ripe cherry, violets, cedar and herbs jumping out of the glass; it shows a wine that is savory with soft fruit around a twisting chain of acidity
  • The palate follows with flavors of blueberry, vanilla bean and sweet mint, with bright acidity still carrying the tasting experience. Soft tannins bring the finish to tones of white pepper, black licorice and Tenuta di Arceno’s signature orange peel
  • Roast Chicken
  • Braised Wild Boar
  • Tortelini Bolognese
Lawrence Cronin

Growing up in New York City, Lawrence Cronin was always aware of his Italian heritage. His mother’s family goes back hundreds of years in the small town of Castellammare del Golfo, a picturesque fishing village on the northwest coast of Sicily. Visits to the old country during his youth made the relocation relatively seamless years later when Lawrence moved to Tuscany to make wine at Arceno.
Lawrence began his professional winemaking career in 1995 at Edmeades Winery in the Anderson Valley region of California’s rugged Mendocino County. Prior to joining Tenuta di Arceno, Lawrence also worked at a number of other prominent wineries worldwide including Firriatto in Sicily, Cloudy Bay in New Zealand, Cape Mentelle in Australia and Calina in Chile.
Lawrence was hired as the winemaker for Tenuta di Arceno in 2002. With guidance from Vigneron Pierre Seillan, he has helped elevate this historic estate into the upper tier of Tuscan producers.
