Tintilia is a little-known grape that grows in the region of Molise (South of Abruzzo) that was near extinction. Farmers were fed up with it as the vine tends to give little and irregular fruit. Nowadays, it's still rare but on the rise with more producers interested in its destinguised character and uniqueness.
It's dark red, a little spicy and floral on the nose. Full-bodied, with flavors of ripe red fruit, leather & tabacco with age.
Regular bottle (750 ml)
