Bocelli, Terre di Sandro I.G.T.
(TAY-ray dee SAHN-droh)

 

Tasting Notes: From the family estate of opera singer Andrea Bocelli comes this classic Sangiovese, a wine which has been made on his family's vineyard for over 130 years. Through Andrea's success, the Bocelli family has taken delight in sharing classic Italian passions–music and Tuscan wine–with the rest of the world. Now, their own Sangiovese, aged in French oak barriques, is available for everyone to enjoy. With aromas of tart cherry, sweet black currant, and violets, this wine is aptly named Terre di Sandro which translates to "Earth of Sandro," Sandro being Alberto and Andrea's father.
