Are we really basically one week away from Christmas? Yowsa!
For me, one of the wine highlights of 2021 was finally getting the opportunity to present Il Fauno to you at below $25. We have been working to make this happen for years, and the stars finally aligned for us this fall.
Why do we think Il Fauno is the super tuscan to end all super tuscans?
Is it that good? The answer is undeniably - yes.
Tenuta di Arceno is an ancient Tuscan estate, massive in scale at over 2500 acres, producing some of the most interesting and powerful wines in the Chianti Classico DOCG region and under the Toscana IGT designation. The estate is in the southern portion of Chianti Classico in the all-important commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga where Il Fauno is produced.
Here Merlot is the dominant grape, at about half the blend, with Cabernet Franc playing a supporting role and only a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. It’s grown in the rather warmer sunnier portion of the estate and, with more clay, famously a soil that Merlot can, in the right places, do great things.
So pop a bottle tonight on this wonderful holiday weekend. Celebrate yourself, celebrate your family, celebrate your friends and celebrate all we have to be thankful for!
