Tintilia
Tintilia del Molise DOC

2016

Tintilia is a black-skinned grape indigenous to the small region of Molise. It is grown in very small quantities. Tintilia wines tend to a rich, ruby red in color and are full-bodied, with evident, yet soft, tannins.

100% Tintilia

Because of its low productivity, many Tintilia vineyards had been abandoned and this peculiar grape variety risked falling into oblivion, until recently a select number of quality producers from Molise invested in growing Tintilia grapes and in making quality varietal wines from such grapes.

It's a full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a perfect blend of flavors of plum and undergrowth and hints of leather and liquorice, deep ruby red color with purple hues.

Wine-Food Pairing

For its structure, it accompanies rich dishes, especially white and red meats, game and aged cheeses. Serving temperature: 18° C.
