2017 Toscana Il Fauno Di Arcanum.

il fauno di Arcanum is a Bordeaux-style blend that embodies the diversity of the estate and is sourced primarily from the Arceno di Sotto, La Curva, Colombaio and San Giovanni
blocks. Located in the lower southwest section of the estate, in a warmer, exposed subsection that ripens early, the soils possess a significant amount of clay, with good water retention, and produce wines that tend to be more voluptuous and lush.

tasting notes
2017 was a one-of-a-kind vintage. An incredibly hot August ripened the grapes early. Legendary small yields for this vintage produced exceptionally intense and  concentrated wines. Harvest began during the last days of August and finished within
the first week of September. The nose exudes big ripe black cherries, earthy vanilla bean and notes of cedar from the Cabernet Franc. This powerful, luscious and mouth-filling wine has dominating flavors of ripe strawberries, white chocolate and cotton candy. The tannins provide structure yet are soft and supple. The finish is surprisingly racy with hints of black licorice and spicy white pepper. This lively wine should be enjoyed with friends and family during any occasion.

90 POINTS - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, July 2020

"An elegant Bordeaux styled blend from Tuscany, this wine is primarily Merlot-based, and says winemaker Pierre Seillian "it's a great value, it is high quality for a great price." Indeed, Seillan and Lawrence Cronin hand-selected micro-lots of fruit across the vineyards, fermenting each one separately and then making a final, optimal blend that sings with freshness, complexity and richly woven fruit. Drink now or consider aging it 10-15 years. The exceptional quality will last" -  Katie Bell, September 2020.

54% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
