98 Points Decanter - Today covering almost 17 hectares, the estate's Cabernet Franc is subject to a broad as much as a severe selection, which has improved the wines. It was sourced from a single plot in 2008, while this 2016 comes from 10 different plots. The French clones (326 - 327) can be problematic according to winemaker Pierre Seillan: 'With too high yields, too much herbal character is achieved, while with a tight leaf canopy it wouldn't ripen properly'. Cabernet Franc is not new to producing outstanding wines in Tuscany, and Seillant is not new to managing this grape variety in pursuit of excellence. Crimson in color, it has a super restrained Cab Franc character of cassis and eucalyptus, with an almost citrus flavor in depth and a sweet, toasty finish of milk chocolate, liquorice and cacao powder. This 2016 is sleek and concentrated, with ripe, refined tannins and refreshing acidity. A full and tense wine.

94 Points James Suckling - A rich, powerful super Tuscan that reminds me of some of the cult wines of Napa. Yet, there’s underlying freshness and brightness to the blackberry, mineral, stone and floral character. Extremely rich and opulent, but shows tension and focus. Better after 2022.

Arcanum is the pinnacle of the estate’s offerings. Based on Cabernet Franc, the true signature of the estate, it has been sourced over the years primarily from the Apparita and Belvedere blocks of Cabernet Franc. We are proud to introduce the 2016 Arcanum, the first vintage composed of 100% Cabernet Franc from different vineyard blocks at the estate. Particularly 12 blocks — each one with superb exposure on sandy clay soils — excel every year producing the finest expressions of the variety. Arcanum is built to age remarkably 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
