Growing Conditions

Our signature red wine blend, Canto is the culmination of an inspired vision, skillful winemaking and an intuitive search for the finest grapes. Traditionally, Canto has been a “Super Tuscan” blend at Luna Vineyards. In 2014, we combined reserve selection Sangiovese from the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville with Merlot from Howell Mountain, Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak, and Cabernet Franc from Coombsville.

Winemaking

All of our fruit was handpicked and sorted before going into the crusher, which gently crushes the berries. They are then sorted by hand a second time, ensuring that only the best grapes make it into the wine. We allowed a very warm fermentation, to extract the most possible flavor, texture, and color from the grapes.

Appearance

A dark, inky hue.

Food Pairing

Lamb, hearty Italian dishes— bolognese, osso buco, gruyère.
