Bocelli Prosecco 2010
Made from the Prosecco grape that is indigenous to the Veneto region, this sparkling wine has subtle flower and fruit aromas that make the palate deliciously light and playful. Unlike many Champagnes, it is not harsh-rather, it tickles the throat with a peachy softness, and is flecked with minerality that remains simple in the best of ways. Perfect perlage make it the ideal choice for any occasion.
Bocelli is the family winery of famous Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli on their property in Lajatico in Tuscany. It is currently run by him, his brother Alberto and his sister-in-law, Cinzia. Production is kept very small, only 300 cases per year. The wines are produced as structured blends of native Tuscan grapes, primarily Sangiovese.
