With double the volume of a standard wine bottle, the Magnum format houses 1.5 liters of some of the world’s greatest wines. There are so many reasons for choosing to gift a wine in Magnum format! First and foremost: these bottles are made to age. Their physical properties include a lower ullage (air-to-wine surface ratio), allowing the wine inside to age more slowly and develop greater complexity over time. Additionally, the thicker glass better protects the precious liquid inside from temperature changes and damaging ultraviolet light. Simply put, wines meant to age do it best in Magnum format.
Second: since they are expensive to produce and often contain the best wine of any given vintage, most wineries release only a few such bottles each year, making them extremely rare. And lastly: because of its large size, gifting a Magnum format means gifting celebration in a bottle, the chance to fully enjoy life’s special moments with those who matter most. Millesima is uniquely positioned to offer you one of the largest selections of Magnums in the country. These are bottles built to stand out as truly memorable, eye-catching gifts and ideal centerpieces for any collection.
