Review: 2015 Tenuta di Arceno Valadorna Toscana IGT
This Tuscan blend of 65% merlot, 19% cabernet sauvignon, 11% cabernet franc, and 5% petit verdot is a brooding bruiser, punctuated with notes of licorice, dark chocolate, and orange peel on its expressive but quite dry nose. The still fairly tannic wine needs some time to open up, its graphite notes slowly giving way to notes of rhubarb, tart cherry, and blackberry, spiced just so with cloves and green peppercorns.
