Winemaker's Notes:

Immediately upon opening Bel Canto leads with an intriguing, almost medicinal quality, tightly wound and razor sharp. Two hours of air soften the nose into red fruit, a host of baking spices, minerals and pencil lead. The texture of the palate is remarkably silken, given the firm acidity and present tannins. This is a Bel Canto for the cellar or long decanting.
