TASTING NOTES
Arcanum is the flagship of the wine production of the tenuta di arceno. Obtained mainly from Cabernet Franc, the most representative grape of the estate, the wine is enhanced thanks to the further aging in the bottle, but also excites in youth, with its aromas of violets, roses, raspberries and delicate spicy notes that stretch in the palate; it is a seductive wine in its refined subtlety. Arcanum comes mainly from cabernet franc apparita and belvedere blocks. Their excellent exposure and sandy clay soils guarantee every year the best expression of this variety for the top wine of the tenuta di arceno. On the estate, the Cabernet Franc thrives year after vintage, but especially in years like 2015, the varietal character reflects fruit and the sun. In the glass, at the first impact are evident and immediate the dark and intense aromas of fruit, such as ripe plums, freshly cut blackberries and sweet mint notes. The sensation in the mouth is full, balanced by delicate acids and rich tannins. The flavors are reminiscent of cherries covered with dark chocolate and spicy black pepper. The long finish is reminiscent of cigar boxes and cedar in perfumes. A vintage with aging potential until the next decade, which will develop beautifully thanks also to 12 months of aging in oak French new to 80%

Its origins date back to the Etruscan period. The estate was first owned by the Sienese Taja family and then passed to the Piccolomini, a historic Tuscan family influential in Siena since the 11th century. In 1994 it was purchased by Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke.Of clear Tuscan lineage, Tenuta Di Arceno have a level of richness, concentration and character comparable to that of the best wines in the world. The 90 hectares of vineyard are located on rocky hills at an altitude between 300 and 560 meters above sea .m. The climate is temperate and the composition of the soil, consisting of clay, granite and basalt, facilitates drainage as well as reflecting the warmth of the sun to the plant. The company has always cultivated the most famous native vine in Toscana, Sangiovese, but has also experimented with the cultivation of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.The wine team, composed lawrence cronin and pierre seillan. Lawrence, has brought great sensitivity in the production of Chianti Classico wines, finding the maximum expression in the Gran Selezione Strada al Sasso, Sangiovese in purity.
