It would be impossible to exaggerate the grandeur and majesty of the overachieving 2015 Arcanum. The blend is 74% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. This full-bodied wine is mostly defined by its texture that is exceedingly rich and smooth with significant infusions of blackberry, plum, spice, tobacco and cured leather. The wine achieves beautiful balance, yet it remains intense and powerful all the while.
Located in the Castelnuovo Berardenga comune of the Chianti Classico appellation, the sprawling Tenuta di Arceno estate is measured at more than 1,000 hectares, including 90 hectares of vines and 50 hectares of olive trees. With elevations that range from 300 to 500 meters above sea level, the estate claims to have identified ten unique microclimates on the property. Soil profiles include crushed rock, sand, clay, sandstone, basalt and shale.
