This Merlot-led blend 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. These blocks are often the last Merlot blocks to ripen on the estate.

3 reviews for Arcanum Valadorna Toscana IGT 2016

  1. DEC

    The celebrated 2016 vintage in Tuscany continues to impress. This Bordeaux blend is based on Merlot but has a slightly Left Bank style, and will soon become the estate’s current vintage of Valadorna, due to be released this year. Aged in 60% new French oak, it is polished and intense, with bramble fruit, earthy balsamic tones, a milk chocolate aroma and a slightly herbal touch. Its tight-knit structure, combining crisp acidity and firm yet velvety tannins, makes this a powerful yet graceful wine. Even if you’re not a fan of Tuscan Merlot, the tense character it gives to wines in the Chianti region is to be admired.

  2. JS

    Linear, fresh red with plum and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium body, light tannins and a fruity finish. Subdued and focused.

  3. WAS

    This easy-drinking Bordeaux-variety blend offers rich dark-berry flavors laced with notes of smoke and soft herbs.

cabernet sauvignon - merlot
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, two iconic grape varieties, are the heart and soul of many exceptional wines. This classic blend, often referred to as the "Bordeaux Blend," has its roots in the Bordeaux region of France, where it is believed to have originated. However, these grapes have spread their influence to various wine regions worldwide, each adding its own unique character to the blend. The choice of regions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes is vital, as climatic conditions and soil profiles significantly impact the quality of the wine. Bordeaux's moderate maritime climate with influences from the Atlantic Ocean provides the ideal conditions for these grapes. The gravelly soils in Bordeaux offer excellent drainage, which encourages the vines to dig deep for water,...Please check Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot for more information

This region, encompassing the entirety of Tuscany, has played a pivotal role in the evolution of Italian wines on the global stage, offering a canvas for winemakers to express their artistry without the stringent limitations imposed by the more rigid Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) classifications.
