Discover the Diversity of Italian Wines
With over 800 grape varieties, Italy is a unique adventure for wine lovers. Food friendly and a great range of famous styles, this Millesima Discovery Wine Gift Set will make you feel like you are in a piazza sipping al fresco with a homemade bowl of pasta.
The Millesima team has curated the Italian Discovery Wine Gift Set with three bottles from the famed Tuscany wine region. Each bottle expresses the diversity of the iconic Sangiovese grape, showing how this variety can shine on its own or as a major player in a red wine blend. Sangiovese is known for its balanced nature of bold tannins and acidity. Dark fruit such as black cherry, blackberry and hint of herbaciousness is the fundamental structure of the variety, while each area within Italy permits different styles showing the wide range of this popular grape.
The Italian Discovery Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles: Castello di Volpaia sits atop the Chianti hills producing lovely classic Italian wines through organic practices; Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona wines are consistently impeccable with an affordable price tag; and Poliziano is a family run winery passed down through three generations making beautiful wines that reflect their homeland.
Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico 2016
Sangiovese, Merlot – Tuscany
Bright fresh fruit dominates this classic Italian sipper. The Sangiovese grape really shines with cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors and crisp acidity, while the splash of Merlot gives the wine depth and body to pair wonderfully with regional dishes. The palate on the Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico is balanced and juicy with rounded tannins and a lovely long lasting finish.
Ciacci Piccolomini D’Aragona Rosso di Montalcino 2016
Sangiovese – Tuscany
Notes of red berry fruit mixed with a sweet spice and floral undertones creates a complex bouquet of aromas when first appraoching the Ciacci Piccolomini wine. The palate is soft with the same warm sweet spiced tannins and ripe fruit acidity creating a balanced and structured sipper.
Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2015
Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo, Merlot – Tuscany
Blackberries, black cherry mixed with notes of strawberry dominate the palate followed by a rich balance of oak and full tannins to match the acidity. The generous Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers power, finesse and the bit of age in bottle allowing for a lovely and balanced wine.
