Made from Tuscany’s noble varietal, the Bocelli family’s passion and expertise are on full display in this exceptionally bright, lush, and appealing Sangiovese. With grapes hand-harvested from some of the best vineyard sites in Morellino, the fruit is deliciously ripe and smoky, with notes of marasca cherry, granite, and rhubarb compote. The finish is long and suitably dry, with admirable acidity that makes the palate taut and appealing.
Sangiovese is Tuscany; the basis of all Chianti, all Brunello, all Vino Nobile - every red wine except the rare IGT. For Andrea Bocelli, the world's foremost classical singer, and his winemaker brother Alberto, it's not inaccurate to say they were born to make great Sangiovese. This is classic, letter-perfect Tuscan Sangiovese, all about red berries, cherries, rhubarb, anise, spices, and dried cranberries. When you taste it, you will hear Andrea's voice wafting a Puccini melody across a table laden with rich Italian food. Remove the name "Bocelli" and you still have one of the best basic Sangiovese wines we've seen in years. Get yours now, before it's gone!
|Since 1881, spanning three generations, the Bocelli family has made classic Italian wines on their small estate in Tuscany. To this day, "Mamma Bocelli” still enjoys working in the fields, carefully hand-tying vines. Sister Cinzia and brother Alberto manage the azienda, and receive guests that stop by to say hello – it is a true family affair.
And if there is one thing that Andrea, brother Alberto, and their family love to do, it is to share their special Italian culture with friends around the world. Whether it is the music of "La Boheme,” or the wine of la dolce vita, they understand the art of living well. That is why, for the very first time, they have partnered with other exceptional growers to hand-select some of the best sites in Italy to produce exceptional wines that they themselves enjoy; that are perfect for celebrating every day.
