Arcanum 2009

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 is a wine that is
seductive yet subtle. Arcanum is sourced primarily from
the Apparita 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.

tasting notes
Showcasing a deep, brilliant black cherry color, the 2009 Arcanum is truly a superb wine. On the
nose, elegant aromas of spice and vanilla lead to an intensity that is remarkable for such a young
wine. On the palate, the wine reveals flavors of white pepper, nutmeg and orange peel that meld
together seamlessly to create a balanced wine with refined tannins and a long, lingering finish. Led
by Cabernet Franc, this wine demonstrates what Cabernet-Franc-based blends can achieve in the
Tuscan hills

94 points - BRUCE SANDERSON, Wine Spectator, March 2015
“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.
Drink now through 2018.”
