2016 was an expressive and elegant vintage. There was ample summer sunshine and just enough rain in early September to hold off harvest, givingthe fruit more precious time on the vine. Warm days and cool nightsproduced wines with ripe fruit flavors, deep colour, vibrant acidity and veryprecise aromatics. Floral tones of violets and lavender dominate the aromas.Other aromas include blueberries on the vine, vanilla bean and honey. Thepalate is framed by bright acids with a dense layered center. Flavors of tartcherries give way to a lasting cedar and orange peel finish.

Pairs well with Steak Florentine, Osso Buco, and Chicken Cacciatore.

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

This is quite reduced now, so it certainly needs some time in bottle before serving. It should turn out to be a beauty; dark cherries, black olives and blackberry tart intermingle with vanilla and spices. Full-bodied with a lovely, velvety mouthfeel and loads of layers of dark fruit. Drink in 2023.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93 Points
The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a nicely integrated and seamless wine, with satisfying fullness and richness. It reveals a very contemporary bouquet with black cherry covered in chocolate. The wine is thinner in the mouth, and the tannins make their presence known. But overall, it shows a very streamlined construction. Pair it with a French onion soup. The blend is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French barrique for 12 months. Again, Tenuta di Arceno gives you great value for your money.
