Bocelli Tenor Red Toscana 2015
Long before Andrea Bocelli was famous for music, the Bocelli family has been known for wine. For over 130 years, spanning 3 generations, they have 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-in-law Cinzia and brother Alberto manage the business, and receive guests that stop by to say hello. It is a true family affair.
If there is one thing that Andrea, Alberto, and their family love to do, it is to share their special brand of 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 they have partnered with other exceptional growers to produce Bocelli Family Wines, wines that express the unique pleasures, and character, of Italy, wines that they enjoy at their own table.
All of the wines are personally produced and selected by Alberto and Andrea Bocelli and their partners, and are of exceptional quality and provenance. From estate-grown, single cru wines with just a few hundred cases made, to their immensely pleasing partner-grown selections, Bocelli Family Wines combines three of Andrea and Alberto's favourite things in life, music, wine, and la famiglia.
Tasting Notes... The wine is comprised of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Sangiovese, and 33% Merlot. Dusty, earthy, dried fruit on the nose, dark fruit flavour in the mouth, with plum, blackberry, cherry cola, a touch of leather and oak towards the finish. A rather elegant wine for the money and one that will develop quite nicely with a little air.
