Soil: Clayish and stoney
Grapes: Corvina, Rebo and Merlot
Viniﬁcation: Fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel, followed by ageing for six months in 500L French oak barrels
Total Acidity: 5,1 g/l

Experiencing Mille1 is like driving with the top down on a summer day: The color is a vibrant garnet, shimmering with opaqueness and enveloping the nose in scents of wildflowers, ripe currants and blackberries and warm spices. At first taste, the wine is lively and full bodied, inviting you back for another sip as savory undertones carry into notes of red berries. A freshness like a seaside breeze moves through the finish, leaving a silky softness behind.
Take Mille1 to a picnic to enjoy with an array of foods, for a weeknight dinner with family or to a weekend barbecue with friends. Mille1 is a wine you can enjoy and share anytime.
