From the bottle:
“Tenuta Di Arceno is a historical winery situated near the medieval village of San Gusme where one can still see the footprints of the Etruscans. Strada al Sasso Riserva is from a vineyard that borders this ancient rocky village and is an authentic homage to the overwhelming beauty of the land.
Today we’ve got a heck of a deal for you from CorkExclusive, especially when you factor in shipping. As mentioned above, the average price on Wine-Searcher for this wine is $32 yet somehow CorkExclusive is offering this for just $17.99 with free shipping. Not only that but the next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $29.98 plus shipping (which they estimated at $13 for my location!) Of course, all this is for naught if the wine doesn’t measure up, so let’s check it out.
The 2007 Tenuta Di Arceno Strada al Sasso Chianti Classico Riserva begins with wonderful aromas of dark fruit, licorice, tobacco, coffee, a bit of baking spice and smoked meat. The wine tastes smooth and delicious with tons of spice, awesome juicy sour cherry fruit, nice dried herbal notes and oak overtones. All these components are integrated together fantastically at 7 years old and it still has plenty more life left in it. It ends dry and grippy with very long lasting juicy fruit. The whole thing is just as good on day 2. A perfect 10!
