Il Fauno di Arcanumtext

Il Fauno di Arcanum 2016

Tuscany, ItalyLet’s start with an outstanding vintage as a base: sunny, warm and no rush to harvest allowed for the best possible ingredients: fully ripe grapes. The mix is 51/31/17/1 merlot/cabernet franc/cabernet sauvignon/petit verdot, leading to a voluptuous style Super Tuscan with a French sense of refinement and restraint. I love the combination of rich black fruits and mushroom, cedar, savoury forest floor. The texture is equally expressive, and it’s going on in a super young bottle of red wine. Bet on this going the distance well into the 2030s.Tasted: 11 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
