Pentro d'Isernia, Campi Valerio (75cl)

Why we love it

This is a unique wine, a wine only produced in the best vintages and in very limited production - in 2015, the current vintage only 1213 bottles were made - and sold before it is even released all over the world. We managed to get a couple of case due to our relationship with the winery.

Pentro is a blend of the two red grapes grown in the estate, Montepulciano and Tintilia, mainly Montepulciano. Both grapes are selected from a single vineyard, old vines, with a very low yield, fermented and aged for 24 months in barrique. The result is a great red wine, a wine that need to be decanted, with a complex nose, with notes of black fruit and balsamic, coffee and vanilla. On the palate the wine is full, warm, with tannins and a lively acidity, perfectly balanced, with a long finish. Pentro is a wine to sip, a meditation wine to enjoy with aged cheeses or on its own.

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.
