Bocelli, Poggioncino Rosso Toscano I.G.T.
(po-jon-CHEE-no ROH-so toh-SKAH-nah)

 

Tasting Notes: From the family estate of international opera sensation Andrea Bocelli, we are proud to present "Poggioncino," a Sangiovese as tasteful and classic as the famous Tuscan himself. Aided by brother Alberto and sister-in-law Cinzia, they did not decide to export their wine until they met Small Vineyards, and we couldn't be happier that they did. Dried cherry, sage dust, and ripe berry are the hallmarks of this wine.
