Outstanding, harmonious, supple.
Tenuta di Arceno is an estate located in Castelnuovo Berardegna near Siena in Tuscany and il fauno di Arcanum is a Bordeaux-style blend that embodies the diversity of the estate. Sourced primarily from the Di Sotto, La Curva, Colombaio and San Giovanni blocks located in the lower southwest section of the estate; it is a warmer, exposed subsection that ripens early. In addition, the soils possess a significant amount of clay, with good water retention producing wines that tend to be more voluptuous and lush.
It's a consistently outstanding Super Tuscan blend with components that vary by vintage, the 2017 is: Merlot (54%), Cabernet Franc (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon 12%) and a splash of Petit Verdot.
It doles out dulcet notes of wild cherries and strawberry, red plums and leather and brown spices, dark cocoa, coffee and rose petals. The entry is supple the fleshy fruit sweet and generous, it is harmonious and slick with great concentration and complexity, the tannins are chalky. Classic.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary
