The wine is sourced primarily from the Valadorna and Capraia blocks, which produce the estate’s most complex and mineral-based expressions of this variety. The blocks are located within the cooler part of the estate, naturally irrigated by the stream that undulates through it, and feature sandy brown soils and lower yields than typical. Winery

The 2015 Valadorna (65% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is a dark and thickly endowed red wine that boasts a rich and lasting grip on the palate. The bouquet offers depth and complexity with dark fruit, leather, cured tobacco and spice. There are also softer notes of chocolate and ground espresso beans. The wine's seamless integration of flavors leads to increased momentum and intensity as the wine continues to open in the glass. Rating: 95+

Super Tuscans, gorgeous Italian blends made in the heart of Italy’s most-important wine regions, are among the most-desired in the world. Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Solaia are resplendent examples of Super Tuscans and are hugely popular and expensive. Values can be found, especially in stellar vintages like 2015, and we have discovered one of the absolute best. The Arcanum, Valadorna 2015 has been rated 95+ points by Parker and the vintage for the region is one of the all-time greats. The wine is full-bodied, wonderfully supple with integrated tannins, glorious opulent berry fruit and at our price an absolute steal for what’s in the bottle.

Winemaker is tremendous! In honor of its history, the name Arceno comes from the Etruscan word Archè, which means “point of origin". The estate is located between two rivers: the Ambra, which flows to Florence, and the Ombrone, which flows to the Mediterranean. The Del Taja family purchased the land in 1504 and added architectural improvements. Then, in 1829 the estate was sold to the Piccolominis, one of the most illustrious families of Siena; who created the splendid outdoor structures that still stand today. Today the Winery is owned by the Jackson Family who purchased it in 1994 and is part of their international portfolio. Wines are made by Pierre Seillan who has made wine all over the world. His breakout was the 100pt Parker Bordeaux Blends he made at Verite in California. The wine is drinking gloriously and will age superbly in your cellar. The winery is situated in Berardenga one of the sweets spots of Tuscany and home to other greats like Fontodi and Felsina. With a savings of 37%, a huge 95+ Parker, all-time great vintage makes this is an insane buy and wait till you taste it!
