Bocelli, In Canto I.G.T.
(een KAHN-toh)

 

Tasting Notes: From the family estate of Andrea Bocelli, in Toscana comes In canto. Named after Andrea's first studio album, this is a dense, powerful, lush Cabernet Sauvignon that fills the senses. With just a few hundred cases made, every plant is fussed over, and every bottle counts. Alberto Bocelli, winemaker and brother to Andrea, makes this wine with a genuine passion for the French-origin varietal. In their soils of Lajatico, near Pisa, the ripening season is longer than many areas of Toscana, and their Cabernet expresses itself exceedingly well. A decadent wine with genuine character.
