About this Wine:
Arcanum is the pinnacle of the estate's offerings. Based on Cabernet Franc, the true signature of the estate, this remarkable wine is built to age yet is drinkable young, offering aromas of violets, roses and raspberries, with long and delicate spice notes; it s a wine that is seductive yet subtle. Arcanum is sourced primarily from the Appparita and Belvedere blocks of Cabernet Franc. With superb exposure and sandy clay soils, each year these blocks shine to produce the finest expression of the variety, and the leading wine of the estate.

"In Tuscany, on the rough slopes of the Chianti Classico region, Cabernet Franc excels, despite the climate variations and diversity of soils with different exposures and elevations. Since the 2002 vintage, Cabernet Franc has proven to be the grandmaster of elegance and power, panache and finesse." - Pierre Seillan, Viticulturist and Winemaker

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Dense and powerful, this red layers ripe black currant, cherry, chocolate, prune and spice flavors over firm, assertive tannins. This is starting to hit its stride, but needs food to match the tannins. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon." - BS (Mar 31, 2015)
