In the footsteps of Marco Polo.
The history of Stra’ del Milione
Stra’ del Milione is the road used by Marco Polo in the thirteenth century on his explorations and the road used to reach the East from Venice. Modello delle Venezie comes to life in the vineyards located along this road and on the estate that goes by
the same name.
Our land is unique.
Climate and territory
Modello is produced in an environment that is particularly suited to viticulture and ideal the production of innovative wines with
a unique style. The vicinity of the Adriatic Sea and gentle Bora winds from the Gulf of Trieste help mitigate the climate and reduce moisture on the vineyard. Even the Dolomites affect climate, protecting our vineyards from the northern air currents.
Nothing is left to chance: we pay particular attention to the irrigation of our lands and exploit the wealth and richness offered by pure water springs.
The soul of our territories.
Grapes and local techniques
Modello expresses the rich heritage of Venetian grapes: Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Verduzzo, Refosco, Raboso and Merlot, grown with the sylvoz and guyot systems. At Masi we have always promoted the heritage of the grapes and
the indigenous techniques in order to express the true soul of this land with our wines.
Innovation, a careful choice.
