TASTING NOTES
Arcanum is the flagship of the wine production of the Arceno estate. Obtained mainly from Cabernet Franc, the most representative grape of the estate, the wine is enhanced thanks to a further refinement in the bottle, but also excites in its youth, with its aromas of violet, rose, raspberry and delicate spicy notes that extend up to to the palate; it is a seductive wine in its refined finesse. Arcanum comes mainly from the Cabernet Franc Apparita and Belvedere blocks. Their excellent exposure and sandy clay soils guarantee each year the best expression of this variety for the flagship wine of the Arceno estate. In difficult years the true production quality of a winery is confirmed. As a critical essay said, "everyone can make good wine in a favorable year, but only the best wineries produce great wines even in difficult years". The 2017 vintage was powerful with hot summer days and abundant sunshine, ripening the Cabernet Franc rapidly. But as summer transitioned to fall, Tuscany had moderate rainfall and cool evenings, allowing the grapes ample time on the vine. This vintage was exceptionally ripe with lower yields that produced wines with concentrated and notably intense flavors. A Cabernet Franc that embodies a sense-of-place, distinctive of the diverse micro-crus of each vineyard block hand-selected for this vintage. Aromas of sweet oregano, mint and tart cherries are familiar to the nose on this Tuscan single-varietal wine. The palate is soft and round, framed by subtle acid. A core of fresh blueberries, dark chocolate and salted caramel are balanced by a long, elegant finish with hints of licorice, cedar and tobacco. A powerful, expressive Cabernet Franc to be enjoyed for decades. This wine will age wonderfully thanks to 12 months of aging in 70% new French oak.

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.
