Highlights

  • Luna Vineyards’ 100% Sangiovese comes from local premiere vineyards farmed specifically for this unique varietal.
  • Created to retain the vibrant fruit flavors of Sangiovese with complex characteristics
  • This special wine showcases Luna’s dedication to blending Italian and Napa winemaking styles
  • Displays the best of Napa Valley grapes and will age gracefully to 2025 and beyond

Traditionally, Canto has been a “Super Tuscan” blend at Luna Vineyards. In 2013, we combined reserve selection Sangiovese from the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville with Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain, Merlot from Diamond Mountain, and Cabernet Franc from Coombsville. All of our fruit was handpicked and sorted before going into the crusher, which lightly cracks the berries. They are then sorted by hand a second time, so that only the best grapes make it into the wine. We allowed a very warm fermentation, to extract the most possible flavor and texture from the grapes. All of the lots were aged separately in oak barrels for twenty months.
