Notes from the Winemaker:

The colour is brilliant, deep intense garnet red with violet nuances. Ample and clean, intense bouquet with notes of berries (blueberry and blackberry), spices (cinnamon and pepper) and cocoa flavours. The taste is full, harmoniuos and warm, with silky tannins and spicy long finish.

Origin of the name:
Millepassi, italian for "one thousand steps", refers to an ancient Roman road crossing the estate and to the old Roman measure of length "milium" that corresponds to 1.480 meters.

Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot



Ratings & Reviews
95 Points - James Suckling:
"This is clearly the best wine ever from here, with currants, minerals, light mint and flowers. Full body with firm tannins and an intense finish. This is so polished and gorgeous. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot. A long life ahead of it: better in 2017." - (October 20th, 2014)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot opens with aromas of blackberry, cedar and exotic spice. The bold, concentrated palate delivers ripe black cherry, blackberry, graphite, anise and clove alongside assertive tannins." - Kerin O’Keefe (5/1/2015)
