Tenuta di Arceno Strada al Sasso Chianti Classico Riserva 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|

This wine has recently been upgraded from Riserva to Gran Selezione status. The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Strada al Sasso (100% Sangiovese) is shaped by the excellent growing conditions that characterize this classic vintage. This is a full-bodied expression of Sangiovese with contemporary aromas of black cherry, leather, cigar box, sweet tobacco and toasted espresso. This wine provides sweet tannins and lots of succulent fruit richness on the close.
Creme de cassis, black cherries, spices and charcoal. Very refined and structured with a delightful, zesty serving of acidity and a long, chewy finish. An honest, elegant wine that shows great clarity. Drink in 2022." —James Suckling
