The MILLOCCHIO ROSSO primarily comes from the old vineyards of the Millocchio vineyards. It is an assemblage of  separate fermentations of Alicante, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo grapes, done by following the philosophy of natural wine: spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts, long maceration on the skins, no substances added and no filtration. Sulfur dioxide has been replaced by nitrogen, an inert gas, which is used to protect the wines from contact with oxygen during racking and bottling. The wines are aged for 10 months in 500 liter used oak barrels and another 6 months in bottles before leaving the cellar.
The MILLOCCHIO ROSSO is a wine rich in aromas and flavors.
Presently the MILLOCCHIO ROSSO can be found in Austria at VINIFERO (Vienna), in Denmark at IL BUCO (Copenhagen), in Japan at VINECCO (Tokyo), in Italy at PATTUGLIA ENOGASTRONOMICA (Rome) and at La Valigia di Bacco (Catania), in The Netherlands at VINUM NATURALE (Amsterdam), in USA at PORTOVINO (New York).
