Tenuta di Arceno PHILOSOPHY

“I am a servant of the soil. The pure expression of each unique site has, from the beginning, defined my micro-cru philosophy.” – Pierre Seillan, Founding Winemaker

In pursuit of quality, the team implemented a micro-cru viticulture philosophy, which sub-divides each vineyard block into smaller sections based on the individual soil types.

Each micro-cru features varieties, clones, root stocks, and viticulture practices best suited for its terroir.

The micro-crus are tended, harvested, and vinified separately, it is only in the final stages of the wine making process that various micro-crus come together to create the finished wines.

This PRIVATE professional tasting includes:
• Guided tour of the entire winery
• Professional vertical tasting of Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 supertuscan ARCANUM Toscana IL FAUNO IGT in 3 old vintages
• Professional Chef prepared classic Tuscan full lunch with “zero food miles” ingredients
• Wines for the wine pairing lunch

A STORY…

1000 – Arceno cited in historic documents as small independent community
1716 – The first Chianti wine zone is established by Grand DUke Cosimo III de’Medici, now known as Chianti Classico
1829 – The noble Piccolomini family (Pope Innocenzo III) acquire the property
1994 – California wine visionary Jess Jackson and wife Barbara Banke purchase the estate
2016 – Wine Spectator Top 100, #19

In honor of its history, the reference to “Arceno” comes from the Etruscan word archè, meaning “point of origin.”
