Il Fauno di Arcanum 2017

Tuscany, ItalyThere is no denying 2017 was a super hot year in Italy, but for some reason, the Super Tuscans led by cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot managed to make the best of the sunshine as evidenced by this terrific bottle of Il Fauno. Fresh, dense, and power-packed, this is a delight to drink even now, although I would suggest it is a wine that deserves a decade in the cellar. And at this price, that makes it a superstar for the cellar. Spicy licorice spills out of the glass along with powerful black fruit, thankfully held in restraint by the touch of French-born winemaker Pierre Seillan. The textures are equally expressive.
