Why we love it

Tintilia is a Molise native grape only grown in the region, is a grape that can produce high quality wines and this Tintillia del Molise is made with grapes from a single vineyard grown in altitude, above 500msl, altitude that gives the grape even more elegance.

Partially fermented and aged for 24 months in wood, barriques, this wine is a great example of what the grape can produce when properly trained and under the hands of an expert winemaker. Big on the nose, with notes of black fruit and liquorice and vanilla scents, in the palate the wine is full, elegant, smooth and velvety, with a lingering aftertaste. Perfect for rich and flavourful dishes, red meat, perfect with lamb, mature cheeses and we would add dark chocolate.

The artisan who made it

Campi Valerio is a relatively young company, despite the fact that viticulture and wine date back to the 17th century, long before the current ownership. Campi Valerio, through the recovery of small vineyards, are bringing back into life a land that despite its rich history had been abandoned. Molise is little known region full of surprises and history and the vineyards are in the heart of the Pentro area, a couple of decades ago granted the DOC status, an extraordinarily uncontaminated territory producing unique wines, wines slow to mature. Molise is also the Volturno river, the longest river of southern Italy, that provide a unique microclimate for the vineyards and a mountain, influencing and protecting the vineyards. Campi Valerio is a family owned winery growing native grapes, from Tintilia to the now adopted Falanghina and Montepulciano and due to the several small vineyards constituting the estate, like experimenting and creating wines were the terroir is the most distinctive element.
