Jean-Baptiste Arena

2015 Patrimonio <i>Rouge</i> “Grotte di Sole” Jean-Baptiste Arena - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Grotte di Sole was always Antoine’s favorite parcel, and it would seem that his other son, Jean-Baptiste, feels the same way, judging by the ease with which he and his brother decided which parcels they would work. As the name implies, the vineyard is part of a large series of southerly exposed grottoes that capture the sun’s rays fully throughout most of the day. The site has produced many of the family’s finest Nielluccius. Jean-Baptiste’s 2015 effort is a serious wine of deep structure and intensity. Think classic, spirited Sangiovese with a wilder, slightly darker-fruited, herb-singed character from the ancient seaside maquis-studded limestone. This bottling will be good for many years to come. –Dixon Brooke
