Arceno Strada al Sasso Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (DOCG) 2016 (Italy: Tuscany) (ID# 3348)

Name Arceno Strada al Sasso Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (DOCG) 2016 (ID# 3348)
Varietal Sangiovese
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "This is one of the more distinguished wines in this selection from Tenuta di Arceno, with some intriguing notes. I picked up a tiny whiff of animal that blows off quickly and perhaps a moment of BandAid on the nose. At any rate, there is big fruit in the 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Strada al Sasso. And while it's a bit sour on the close, with tight tannins, it's all based around unmistakeable aromas of big, bold cherry. This is a pure expression of Sangiovese aged in neutral barrique for 12 months." (Wine Advocate)
