Bocelli, Alcide I.G.T.
(ahl-CHEE-day)

 

Tasting Notes: Made from 70 year-old vines of Sangiovese, and extremely bright, lush Cabernet Sauvignon, Alcide is named for the grandfather of Alberto and Andrea Bocelli. With the tiny case production, it is a true SuperTuscan from the family farm of perhaps the most famous, modern-day Tuscan of all, Italian tenor–Andrea Bocelli. Deftly and generously coopered with exceptional French oak barriques, the old vines lend a terrific minerality and intensity to the wine that cannot be duplicated by young vines, or large production. A very rare treat for the discriminating Italophile or classical music aficionado.
