Drink it now or cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it for half an hour.

In the heart of Chianti, in a privileged position between Siena and Florence, the Tenuta di Arceno owns more than 90 hectares of vineyards where a winemaking team led by Lawrence Cronin and Pierre Seillan, produces excellent Chianti Classico wines, and Bordeaux blends, such as Fauno di Arcanum, Valadorna, and Arcanum, in which Cabernet Franc and Merlot predominate.

Il Fauno di Arcanum is a classic Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and some additional Petit Verdot. The grapes, selected in the vineyards of Arceno di Sotto, La Curva, Colombaio, and San Giovanni, benefit from a warm and well-exposed condition that facilitates ripening. Here the soils, predominantly clayey, produce wines that tend to be rich and opulent.

The wine shows a beautiful ruby color of medium intensity. The olfactory profile highlights earthy aromas, but also red fruit, nutmeg, cypress, and rose. On the palate, the wine is smooth and lush with delicate tannins and delicious flavors of black cherry, candied apple, licorice and white pepper. The finish is long and spicy. Try it with ragu Bolognese, pappardelle with wild boar or a nice selection of cheeses.
