Notes from the winemaker:
The color 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.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - James Suckling:
"Extremely aromatic with dried-flower, currant and blackcurrant character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, layered and tannic, yet showing a ripe and juicy tannin backbone. Lots of chocolate, walnut and berry character. Needs five years to soften. Structured red. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot." - (November 9, 2016)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Here's a dark, saturated and super enriched red wine with an elaborate bouquet of black fruit and spice. The excellent 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Millepassi is a shapely and opulent expression that offers balance, intensity and power. The bouquet is amply endowed with black fruit intensity. This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot (aged in oak for two years) shows enormous forward momentum and energy that should carry it forward for the next decade of cellar aging. Some 20,000 bottles are produced." - Monica Larner (28th Oct 2016)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
Made with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this bold wine opens with aromas of black currant, cedar and exotic spice. The concentrated palate delivers blueberry jam, graphite, anise and clove alongside assertive tannins that leave a firm finish." - Kerin O'Keefe (3/1/2017)
