Molise, Italy

Molise is lesser known than its neighbour Abruzzo, and the wines are amazingly very different.  With only two DOC's Biferno DOC and Tintillia del Molise DOC, the later is rare and neither wines are well known.


‘Sator’ Tintilia del Molise DOC 2010, Molise, Italy

Lifted aromas on the nose of dried fruits, herbs, black cherries, orange peel, vanilla spice and chocolate. Full-bodied, impeccably structured with fine integrated tannins, sun-kissed summer fruits, sweet spice, chocolate and earth. Wonderfully complex and full of personality. “Word of mention should go to the deep-hued native Tintilia with its signature minerally fragrances . . . these ambitious wines are worth keeping an eye on.” Gambero Rosso.
