“Mille” is named after the “1000” who followed and marched with Giuseppe Garibaldi who is considered to be one of the “fathers of Italy”. He commanded and fought in many military campaigns. He gathered his thousand “red shirts” in 1860 and conquered Sicily, gaining the first step to Italy uniting as a country. The thousand, marched across the land that now grows this fine wine that I Cacciagalli wisely named Mille, which translates in English to “1000”.
