We had the incredible pleasure of going to see Andrea Bocelli in concert in Tampa this Valentine’s Day!  He was incredible, as always.  It was a special concert consisting of opera arias and beloved favorites.

I immediately recognized the happy Libiamo i lieti calici, the Brindisi from Traviata.  Every time I hear it I have to stop myself from clapping along like the crowds in San Marco when the orchestras play it!  Of course, his version was extra special.

My beloved Con Te Partiro` sent tears streaming down my face, and I wasn’t alone!  It was an unforgettable evening.  Go see him if ever you have the chance!

Did you know the Bocelli family has a beautiful wine estate in Tuscany producing great Tuscan wines?  I recently learned this, and was excited to see this bottle of Sangiovese on the shelf at a store here in Tampa!  Highly recommended if you’re able to find it!

Salute, e Buon San Valentino,
