With the temperatures dipping to the 90s in Southern Nevada, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is keeping it a thousand degrees and that is not just for the ovens baking pizzas (which can reach 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit). The introduction of its new signature wine, Mille Gradi (which means a thousand degrees) is a red blend incorporating three varietals, blended at the Rocca Delle Macie Estate in Castellina in Chianti.

Chef Lattuca, along with an expert team, traveled abroad to the Italian Rocca delle Macìe winery in the rolling hills of Tuscany to find the 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.”

Along with the bold, red wine, Grimaldi’s Executive Chef Cory Lattuca introduced new menu items such as Kale Chopped Salad, Bruschetta Trio options and the perfectly paired Chef’s Selection pizzas: The Don and Margherita

The Bruschetta Trio options offer a choice of three including Marinated Mushroom & Roasted Red Pepper, Classic Tomato & Basil, Marinated Artichoke or Olive Medley. Pair with a glass of Mille Gradi for a perfect beginning or a snack.

For a healthy alternative (or side dish), Kale Chopped Salad is made with kale, romaine lettuce, artichokes, cucumber, red onion, shaved Italian cheese, sun dried tomatoes and kalamata olives tossed in lemon vinaigrette.

Known for baking pizzas in its coal brick oven, the Chef’s Selection pizzas include The Don, a traditional pizza topped with Italian sausage meatballs and pepperoni and the Margherita, a traditional pizza with extra famous sauce and fresh basil.

With five locations in Southern Nevada (including two on the Las Vegas Strip), a full bar and menu including dessert, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is the perfect place for that romantic date, hanging out with friends or time with the family. For more info, visit
