Outstanding, postured, 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.
The 2015 is an outstanding Super Tuscan with components of Merlot (59%), Cabernet Franc (30%), Cabernet Sauvignon (9%) and Petit Verdot. It rolls out sweet wild cherries and wild blackberries, leather and brown spices, dark chocolate and tobacco aromas. A supple entry rolls into a postured wine that is fresh and deftly woven. Spiced plum cake and bitter cocoa, lead to a finish of tealeaf and cedar flavours.
