Grimaldi’s Creates Unique Wine "Mille Gradi" with Italian Winery
Known for its coal-brick oven pizzas and calzones, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria announces the exciting release of its first signature wine, Mille Gradi, meaning ‘a thousand degrees’ – a fitting name for the pizzeria as its ovens can reach up to one thousand degrees Fahrenheit. 

Last year, Grimaldi’s own Executive Chef, Cory Lattuca, along with an expert team, traveled abroad to the Italian Rocca delle Macìe winery in the rolling hills of Tuscany to blend this very special wine. After months of careful grape selection and countless tastings, Rocca delle Macìe’s head winemaker and second-generation owner, Sergio Zingarelli, christened the wine.

“This opportunity was something that Grimaldi’s found to complement the authenticity of our brand,” said Lattuca. “Our pizzas are inspired by the Italian classic, so it felt right that we travel to Italy and create an Italian blend to pair with our menu.”

The easy-drinking red blend incorporates three grape varietals–sangiovese, syrah and merlot–for a smooth finish, sure to impress any wine connoisseur. While Mille Gradi is light enough to pair with the Kale Chopped Salad or a board of bruschetta, its robust character pairs perfectly with ‘The Brooklyn Bridge,’ a Chef Selection and traditional classic topped with roasted red peppers, creamy ricotta cheese and Italian sausage. Glasses of the signature wine start at $10, and bottles are available for $35.

“Naming the wine came easy. A common phrase in Italy is Mille Grazie meaning ‘a thousand thank yous.’ I like to say ‘Mille Grazie for Mille Gradi,’” said Lattuca. “This journey has been one of passion, persistence and hard work. I’m honored to present Mille Gradi to our loyal guests.”

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has five locations in Las Vegas and one in Sparks, Nev. Las Vegas locations include The Shoppes at The Palazzo, Rainbow and 215, Boca Park Fashion Village The Fashion Show Mall and Richmar Plaza. The Sparks restaurant is located in The Legends at Sparks Marina.
