Andrea Bocelli can more then just singing




Around Andrea Bocelli's family home in Lajatico, in the province of Pisa, Andrea and his brother Alberto, who is more directly involved, are pursuing work to improve the wines and the family tradition. A work done, as Andrea says, in honor of the memory of their father, Alessandro, who in his time passionately cultivated the vines planted by his grandfather in the Tuscan region bordering that of Chianti. The wine, prevalently "pure sangiovese igt" (typical geographic indication") red, is called "Le Terre di Sandro," in honor of their father, and this year has borne its first fruit. "My brother and I have begun to try to make a serious wine, and the first results are extremely encouraging," says Bocelli. The first harvest is not yet for sale because it's a very reduced quantity, less than 3000 bottles. "We need to hold it just for ourselves," says the singer, "but the plan is to increase production. In the future there might also be some bottles on the American market. We do it in memory of babbo, who had continued the work of my grandparents and who had so much passion. And I like wine, when it's good. Wine is a universal remedy when we're tired, and full of problems to solve. I call them bottles of happiness."
