Mille1 means 1001. Italy is 1001 miles long from one end to the other. Since ancient Rome, this unique wine country has been at the center of the world for many things, but above all for its culture. That culture is also a wine culture. It's 1,001 miles of wine regions, microclimates and traditions, that have shaped and helped Italy's fame over the centuries. Tasting Mille1 wine is a luxury journey through Italy, to be enjoyed and tasted not once in your life but every day.
Mille1 is like an open top drive on a summer's day: the color is of vibrant garnet, shimmering with opacity and enveloping the nose with scents of wild flowers, ripe berries, blackberries and warm herbs. At first glance, the wine is lively and full of flavor, inviting you to come back for another sip, while the savory undertone turns into notes of red berries. A freshness like a sea breeze moves through the finish and leaves a silky soft feeling. Enjoy Mille1 as an aperitif or to enjoy with a range of dishes, for a weekday dinner with family, to a weekend BBQ with friends or together in front of the fireplace. Mille1 is a wine that you can enjoy and share at any time.
The grapes come from the hills near Lake Garda, an amphitheater of vineyards on moraine soil that were formed by the expansion and retreat of glaciers thousands of years ago during the last Ice Age. This area is very sunny and due to the proximity of Lake Garda very airy and cool. This guarantees healthy vines and optimal ripening without mildew or disease. Even after the harvest when some of the grapes are dried for the appassimento process, a traditional winemaking technique of this region. After harvest, the grapes undergo fermentation and maceration in stainless steel tanks, followed by six months of maturing in 500 liter French oak barrels.
