Tenuta Di Arceno Chianti Classico 2014 DOCG, Italy 

My Rating 78 Points.   

Price $20.
Light Ruby in color with a red rim and light intensity.

Nice nose of red fruits, cherries, strawberries, cloves, earth, leather, green vegetables, herbs, wet leaves, wood and pepper.

Light to medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

On the palate, strawberries, raspberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, cherries, spices, peppercorn and earth.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

A Good food wine but not by itself. Unbalanced and earthy. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable. I usually like Chianti Classico at this price range, but this wasn’t my cup of tea.

A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot .

I paired it with a dish of Baked ziti.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
