The CRU Vineyard Blocks of Tenuta di Arceno

In 1996, the vineyard team conducted a detailed study of the soil, topography and climate to gain a complete understanding of the complexities of the land. These details, along with a more detailed understanding of the diversity of soils, guided decisions around where to plant new vines and varieties. Tight vine spacing, low yields and modern winemaking methods - with an understanding of Italian tradition - results in wines that are rich, pure, regionally specific and highly expressive.

Tenuta di Arceno consists of 92 hectares (220 acres) of vineyards planted to 63 different vineyard blocks. Vine density exceeds 2,000 vines per acre and average yields are around 3 tons per acre.
