Winemaker Notes

The 2011 Valadorna is accented by dark plum aromas and flavors which are displayed in a ripe and juicy profile. Notes of morello cherries, fleshy mission figs and hints of brown sugar are framed with earthy impressions of iron and graphite. This wine is juicy and plush, somewhat modern (from the new French oak) and mouth filling whilst showcasing a soft yet bright lingering finish.
Blend: 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc
James Suckling - 94 Points
A wine with ultra-fine tannins and bright fruit such as blackberry and blueberry. Minerally too. Full to medium body, silky texture and a flavorful finish. So beautiful to drink now. A blend of 60% merlot, 25% cabernet sauvignon and the rest cabernet franc.

Wine Profile

awards

A red with dark berry and tar aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. Needs time to soften. A blend of mostly merlot with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot.

other notes

The Jackson family purchased the Tenuta di Arceno estate in 1994, with its sprawling 2,500 acres, of which only 223 are planted to vine. Cabernet Franc has proven to be the variety best suited to the estate’s diverse soils and topography, and is the true signature of the estate, as it thrives in both warm and cool vintages

ratings

This is settling into its stride now, with the tannins and acidity integrating with the supple texture, setting the stage for bright cherry, raspberry, sage and tar flavors. Still compact on the finish, with a lingering savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.
