Molise is a small and obscure wine region in central Italy, bordered by the southern regions of Campania and Puglia. To its north is Abruzzo, with which it shared a municipality till 1963, Abruzzi e Molise. Between these close north-central and southern cultural ties, this is a region that has historically been waiting to make its own cultural imprint. Wine-making has existed here since the pre-Roman times by various ancient tribes such as the Piceni, Samnites and Etruscans. Though it wasn’t until much later in the 20th century that its wines came to recognition.
Molise has only three DOCs, and its grape selections reflect its north-south identity crisis. Biferno, named for the river, produces mainly blends of rossos, biancos and rosatos. The main grapes are Trebbiano Toscano and Bombino for whites, and Montepulciano (the prevalent Abruzzo red grape) and Aglianico (common in Campania) for reds and rosatos. Pentro di Isernia also produces the same sorts of blends with the distinction Read more »

  • Di Majo Norante Ramitello 2011
