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%

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.
