The nose reveals aromas of juicy fresh strawberries and raspberries with hints of menthol. The palate is filled with flavors of ripe plums and bright cherries as well as floral tones of rose and hints of honeysuckle. Chewy tannins are framed by lively acids. The finish is long and spicy with notes of nutmeg and black licorice, followed by lingering white pepper and tobacco.

A modern blend of 41% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the Tenuta di Arceno 2020 Il Fauno di Arcanum is plump, rich, soft and thickly textured. It promises a youthful and charming interpretation of the general blended-red category from Tuscany (made with Bordeaux grapes), and you will find this bottle to be a successful pairing partner to a hearty dish of pappardella with wild rabbit ragù. Production is 126,000 bottles.

Spiced aromas of roasted sage, black cherry liqueur, and cedar emerge from the 2020 Il Fauno di Arcanum, which is composed of 41% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a splash of Petit Verdot. It is approachable and full-bodied, with generous fruit through the mid-palate, and reveals a silky texture with fine tannins. This is a solid and easy drinking wine to drink 2023-2030.
