TASTING NOTES
Arcanum's faun is a Bordeaux blend that embodies the diversity of tenuta di arceno. It comes mainly from the Di Sotto, La Curva, Colombaio and San Giovanni blocks, located in the south-west part of the estate, in a lower and warmer substation, well exposed and that matures soon. The soils are predominantly clays, with high water retention and produce wines that tend to be richer and opulent. The 2015 harvest will be remembered as an almost perfect and very sunny vintage, with opulent but elegant wines. The scents explode from the glass with great power and notes of blackberries and ripe blueberries. There are scents of violet, earth, cedar and nutmeg. On the palate we find a fair balance between ripe fruit and acidity, as when you bite a caramelized red apple. It is not often found such a balance and harmony between fruit and acidity. The tannins are soft, however present, giving an extra layer to the structure and indicating an excellent potential for aging over time. Among the dominant aromas we find those of ripe plums and intense mandarins. The wine ends in hints of licorice, tobacco and vanilla berries. This is a great vintage for fauno.

Tenuta di Arceno

Tenuta di Arceno Discover Tenuta di Arceno in Tuscany and its fine wines in our online store Tenuta di Arceno is located on the hills of Chianti Classico , precisely in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The estate was first owned by the Sienese Taja family and then passed to the Piccolomini, a historic Tuscan family that was very influential in Siena. In 1994 it was bought by Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke . From a clear Tuscan lineage, the wines of Tenuta di Arceno own a level of richness, concentration and character comparable to the best wines in the world. The 92 hectares of vineyards are located on rocky hills at an altitude between 300 and 560 above see level. The company has always cultivated the most famous native vine of Tuscany, Sangiovese , but also experimenting with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot . The oenological team, that consistt of two winemakers, Lawrence Cronin and Pierre Seillan , brought great sensitivity to the production of the six wines produced. On one hand we find the Chianti Classico wines, which express their best in the Gran Selezione Strada al Sasso . On the other hand, Bordeaux blended wines, such as il Fauno by Arcanum, Valadorna and Arcanum , made from Cabernet Franc and the Merlot.
