Tenuta di Arceno Terroir

Terroir

The terrain at Arceno climbs from 300 meters (1,000 feet) to more than 500 meters (1,750 feet) above sea level, creating 10 distinct mesoclimates. Arceno enjoys a remarkable diversity of soils including clay, sandstone, basalt and hard schist. They range from sediment-based near the riverbanks to extremely rocky in the higher elevations. Our Mediterranean climate is shaped by the warm winds from the south and the cool breezes that flow down from the mountains in the north.
