“Dave Phinney - is one of the more creative young minds in all of the world’s winedom. He is doing things that are far beyond his modest age and deserves to be commended for the brilliant individuality/singularity of all of his efforts.”
“As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candi- date. If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please share that information with the Wine Advocate.’ –
A blend of Negroamaro and Nero d’Avola from the Southern region of Puglia combined with Barbera from Piemonte in the North.
A vast array of aromas escape the glass—black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cured meat—which are complemented by shades of sandalwood, vanilla, balsa and evergreen. The entry is silky smooth with a textured mid-palate of velvety fig, blueberry jam and soft oak. A hint of sea salt on the finish is rounded out with a mouthfeel that fades slowly.
94 Points Expressive and smooth, this hits all the right notes, with pure black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Touches of earth, iron and tobacco add complexity. Shows fine harmony and length. Best from 2020 through 2036. 25,000 cases made.
90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for twelve months in French oak.
The nose exudes ripe plums with spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also an herbal tone of bay leaf and cypress. The mouthfeel has 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.
Nestled in the rolling, verdant hills overlooking the city of Siena in the southwest corner of Classico, the legendary Tenuta Di Arceno Estate consists of more than 2,500 acres, only 210 of which are planted to vines. Arceno’s unique natural environment, which enjoys not only a warm climate but also receives breezes from the Adriatic Sea, affords the creation of our focused collection of wines that reflect the singular beauty of this region.
