Discover the Diversity of Italian Wines
Home to over 800 different grape varieties, Italy represents a unique adventure for wine lovers. Foodfriendly and presenting a great range of famous styles, this Millesima Discovery Wine Gift Set will make you feel like you are on a breezy piazza indulging in a bowl of homemade pasta..
The Millesima team has curated the Italian Discovery Wine Gift Set with three bottles from three different winegrowing areas: Tuscany, Piedmont and Sicily. Each bottle expresses the diversity of Italian wines with different varieties featured, including Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Nerello Mascalase. Sangiovese is known for its balanced nature, bold tannins and acidity. Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity, and distinctive aromas, often described as "tar and roses". Nerello Mascalese, on the other hand, is a highly regarded, dark-skinned grape variety that grows most commonly on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily.
The Italian Discovery Wine Gift Set contains three unique bottles from well-known producers. Castellare di Castellina is a Tuscany wine estate based in the heart of the Chianti Classico area. Mocali is an iconic wine producer in the area of Montalcino and has won the hearts of even the choosiest wine enthusiasts through their iconic Brunello wines. And De Forville produces wines from vineyards located in the hills surrounding Barbaresco and the Langhe.
Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2020
Sangiovese - Tuscany
This Chianti Classico is characterized by a brilliant ruby red color with purple reflections. The nose opens with hints of cherries and violets, enriched by pleasant spicy notes of licorice and vanilla. On the palate it is balanced, with harmonious and delicate tannins. The wine closes with an extremely smooth finish.
Mocali Rosso di Montalcino 2018
Sangiovese - Tuscany
The Mocali 2018 Rosso di Montalcino shows aromas of ripe cherry, black fruit and rhubarb. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and ages in large botti for ten months. It delivers fullness with a pleasant bitterness and metallic or mineral touches on the finish. Fresh fruit flavors are followed by nutty flavors in this exquisite Tuscan gem.
De Forville Barbaresco 2018
Nebbiolo - Piedmont
This wine is the result of the expert savoir-faire of the team at the De Forville estate: the wine is quite traditional, marrying the finesse of Barbaresco with the alluring aromas and flavors of truffle, earth, berries, rose, tar and leather. On the palate, it displays a backbone of soft, powdery tannins, which contribute length and refinement to this wine.
