From a hot and sunny vintage, the Tenuta di Arceno 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva opens to dark cherry fruit, blackberry and plum. Indeed, you get a wide assortment of purple and black fruits in this generous, medium-bodied Riserva to be served with a sliced, grilled sausage and rosemary potatoes. There are streaks of ripeness and sweetness here, and the glass conjures up nutmeg and toasted almond as well. This hot vintage is slightly more near-term compared to some the recent editions we have seen.
