is tremendous! In honor of its history, the name Arceno comes from the Etruscan
word ArchĂ¨, which means â€śpoint of origin". The estate is located between
two rivers: the Ambra, which flows to Florence, and the Ombrone, which flows to
the Mediterranean. The Del Taja family purchased the land in 1504 and added
architectural improvements. Then, in 1829 the estate was sold to the
Piccolominis, one of the most illustrious families of Siena; who created the
splendid outdoor structures that still stand today. Today the Winery is owned
by the Jackson Family who purchased it in 1994 and is part of their international
portfolio. Wines are made by Pierre Seillan who has made wine all over
the world. His breakout was the 100pt Parker Bordeaux Blends he made at
Verite in California. The wine is drinking gloriously and will age superbly in
your cellar. The wine is full-bodied, wonderfully supple with integrated
tannins, glorious opulent berry fruit and at our price an absolute steal for
whatâ€™s in the bottle. Osso Buco anyone??

soft and supple tannins with very approachable acids. Flavors explode with
lavender, tart raspberries and hints of white pepper. The acids carry the
finish of licorice and lingering ripe tangerine. 2015 will be remembered as a
great year. 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker
