Explore Diverse Italian Wine Styles
Italy is known for its heavy-hitter red wines that can easily stand up to a hearty bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Brunello, Amarone Della Valpolicella and Barbaresco are all well-known classic Italian appellations, each with a distinct style of its own. Power, structure, juicy dark fruit backed with oak influence and the ability to age for years makes these bottles very popular.
For the Italian Classic Wine Gift Set, the Millesima team has curated bottles from three of the top wine regions in the country: Tuscany, Veneto and Piedmont. These bottles are truly the classic wines that come to mind for an Italian wine lover. Enjoy the wonderful range of this wine selection, which will transport you to the heart of these regions.
The Italian Classic Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles from well-known producers: La Serena is a Tuscan estate that has consistently received international praise from wine critics; The Benanti family produces wines in Sicily, and has been instrumental in Etna’s viticulture throughout history, contributing first-hand to its evolution; and Elvio Cogno craft exquisite Barolo and Barbaresco wines from the area’s indigenous varietals: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Nascetta.
La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 2016
Sangiovese - Tuscany
La Serena Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is an exquisite expression of Brunello, brought to its pinnacle by a perfect vintage. This wine is ripe and bright, with charming power. The palate is full, with plum-soaked richness, flashes of zesty cranberry, firm yet velvety tannins and an electric mineral grip.
Benanti Contrada Dafara Galluzzo 2019
Nerolo Mascalese - Sicily
Benanti Contrada Dafara Galluzzo 2019 is a versatile wine, which will pair particularly well with red meats, game and aged cheeses. The color is an inviting ruby. The nose is fine, heady, spicy, with plenty of red fruit. The palate is dry, medium-bodied, structured, persistent and harmonious.
Elvio Cogno Bordini 2019
Nebbiolo - Piedmont
The 2019 Barbaresco Bordini is generous: it offers floral notes, and scents of plum and ripe strawberry, alternating with balsamic and peppery hints, for a multifaceted aroma. It shows notes of rose, violet, and spices, which emphasize the long finish.
