Bocelli Rosso Toscana, IGT

The family of famed Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has been making wine for over 130 years.

This Tuscan red is made with the ubiquitous Sangiovese grape variety. The Bocelli family's passion and expertise are on full display in this exceptionally bright, lush, and appealing Sangiovese. With grapes hand-harvested from some of the best vineyard sites in Morellino, the fruit is deliciously ripe and smoky, with notes of marasca cherry, granite, and rhubarb compote. The finish is long and suitably dry, with admirable acidity that makes the palate taut and pleasing.

Poggio Vignoso Chianti

Fattoria di Pugliano's "wine of the people," Poggio Vignoso as it is known at home, is a simple, delightful crowd pleaser. An exceptional, food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with virtually anything. This wine is a remarkable value, it is surprisingly firm, and admirably balanced with intense dried cherries and floral notes. With such consistent quality, it is no surprise that this is such a great seller!

This classic Chianti will pair wonderfully alongside red meat and hearty mushroom risottos; also a perfect wine for pizza.

La Maialina Chianti | Italy

"Settled first by Etruscans then the Romans, the territory of Tuscany has been prized since antiquity for its rich soil and favorable climate for the cultivation of grapes and olives. The earliest documentation of a "Chianti wine" dates back to the 13th century when viticulture was known to flourish in the "Chianti Mountains" around Florence. The name 'La Maialina' (little pig) references the Cinta Senese heirloom breed that originated in the Siena area during the 1300's and is the only Tuscan native pig to survive extinction.

La Maialina Chianti expresses a ruby red color, with bright aromas and flavors of red cherries and ripe strawberries with hints of sweet spices and a soft finish."

regularly: $13.99

Known for their prestigious Brunello di Montalcino, Altesino began making the Rosso di Altesino in 1989 to offer a high-quality wine at a price that could be enjoyed everyday. 80% Sangiovese with 20% Cabernet and Merlot, this is a fresh wine with a bright, ruby red color. Notes of red roses and violets, the wine itself is dry and slightly rustic. Pasta or lasagne with a bolognese sauce would be a match made in an italian kitchen...or heaven, isn't that the same place? $19.99

The Morellino di Scansano, a variety of Sangiovese, is often called the crown jewel of Tuscany. One of eight DOCGs from this sunny region, it is only produced in exceptional vintages. This wine is ruby red with a floral nose of roses, iris, ferns and berries. Thanks to a delicate palate and fresh, light tannins, it pairs easily with red tomato sauces, pizza, and sausage dishes. $19.99
