Tenuta di Arceno
This is an immensely modern and monumental wine…MONICA LARNER, ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE, OCTOBER 2013
Found within the commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga in the province of Siena, Tuscany, the Tenuta di Arceno estate features 10 mesoclimates and a multitude of soil profiles that impart unique complexity, flavors, and structure to our Italian wine portfolio. In addition to its Chianti Classico DOCG range, the estate produces three premium Toscana IGT wines: the flagship Cabernet Franc-led blend, Arcanum; a Merlot-based blend, Valadorna; and a blend of international varieties, il fauno di Arcanum. Cabernet Franc and Merlot are well-suited to the estate’s diverse soils and topography and are signatures of the estate, which traces its roots to the pre-Roman Etruscan civilization.
