Full Body, Dry (Tintilia). DOC from Molise. Alc 15%.
Rare grape Tintilia produces a rich, warm red that will be a big hit with fans of Aglianico, Sagrantino or Merlot. Could also work for fans of Primitivo (Zinfandel).
TASTING NOTES: Shows lots of black fruit notes, with liquorice and hints of pepper. Nice balance of vegetal and fruit. Try with pork and apple sauce, or duck a l'orange (if not too sweet), or pigeon. Rich, opulent, smooth and overall a complete delight.
NB: Rare wine - very limited production and only in exceptional years. Each bottle has hand written note of the bottle number (out of total 2,600 bottles produced).
WINERY NOTES: "This wine is produced only in exceptional vintages with Tintilia grapes harvested late. The wine rest in steel and continues its aging in wood casks. It has a full, enveloping and complex taste, elegantly spicy."
Take note of the label, displaying the SATOR square, which is a 5 word poem that can be read horizontally and vertically, forwards and backwards (and loosely translates to mean “The sower/farmer decides his daily work but the supreme court (the gods?) decides his fate”).
