God blessed Frank Sinatra with a signature voice that inimitably conveyed the emotions of time and place. As a child, h was called by his Italian nickname, “La Voce.” Translated into the tongue of his family’s adopted United States, “The voice”.The one instantly recognized for how it tenderly caresses every note with tender affection. To us, Frank Sinatra was an icon. A persona born to produce enduring quality.

The first wine she served was inaugural the “La Voce” Super Tuscan 2008.
The winery website hints at how something so simple as 92%Sangiovese blends with and 8% Colorino grapes, conjures magic from a vineyard located in the hills of Fiesole, Italy to earn the lable La Voce. The Super-Tuscan style "wine is handcrafted using old world methods, including alcohol fermentation in open top oak barrels for 3-weeks with manual punch downs every four hours. The wine rests in new French Allier barriques for another 18 months to add roundness and complexity."
If you understand the term country formal in interior decorating, you understand the nature of "La Voce". Despite being a very fine wine, it is approachable and unpretentious. This is a celebrate-your- Italian-roots kind of wine- even if the only Italian thing about you is an appreciation for the culture's melodic entertainment style.
Store manager James Franklin suggested a perfect meal with this wine might start with a tempting assortment of anti-pasta tray laden with sopressa and cheeses.
