Wine Enthusiast:

"A smoky, graphite tone of ash or crushed mineral opens the nose of this densely concentrated wine. Dark chocolate, sweet cherry and fresh tobacco leaf are followed by a chewy, syrupy mouthfeel with fine, polished tannins. -M.L." (02/12)

Wine Spectator:

"An inky red, vibrant and infused with violet, blackberry, graphite and spice aromas and flavors. Though concentrated, this is also elegant and well-balanced. The finish is long and compact, indicating this needs time to unwind. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2024. 2,900 cases made. - BS" (10/11)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The 2008 Bolgheri Superiore Arnione is a gorgeous wine. Super-ripe dark cherries, plums, tobacco, mocha and French oak are some of the notes that emerge from this brooding, intense red. The 2008 needs time for the tannins to soften, but is quite attractive. The blend is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018." (06/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Arnione is the Italian word for a kidney-shaped lump of alabaster, the heart of top-quality, valuable gypsum. It alludes to the art of carving alabaster, for which this part of Tuscany is renowned." - Winery

Vineyard:
"The vineyard was conceived according to two cardinal principles: maximum grape quality and maximum mechanisation during growing. Campo alla Sughera has thus created a highly specialised vineyard which covers an area of about 20 hectares. The plots making up the vineyard are all located inside the Bolgheri DOC area, bordered by the Fosso di Bolgheri waterway, which runs alongside the estate itself. This is a terroir which is perfectly suited for the production of top quality wines, both red and white. The micro-climate benefits from sea breezes from the coast, which is just a few kilometres away." - Winery
