    About the region
    Molise
     

    Beautiful beaches, bizzare mountains, fantastic lakes and a delicious regional cuisine.

    Molise is the fourth smallest winegrowing region after Aosta Valley, Liguria and Basilicata. The second smallest region in Italy in terms of area and population. Beautiful landscape, but economically one of the poorest regions of the country with high unemployment. Molise was only separated from the Abruzzi region in 1963. The wine industry has barely been modernised and the tiny vineyards in widely scattered small plots are not exactly economically viable. This is why relatively little wine is produced in Molise.

    Molise is bordered by Abruzzo in the north, Lazio in the west, Campania in the south and Apulia in the south-east. For tourists there are sparsely populated beaches in the east of the Adriatic coast. In the west the mountains rise up to 2.700m, there you can even ski.

    Mini plots at high altitudes do not make viticulture easy.

    Although wine-growing can be found almost everywhere in Molise, the main part is in the surroundings of the two larger cities Campobasso, the capital, and in the hills near Isernia. Some locations on the edge of the mountains reach up to 600 meters above sea level. Everywhere the plots are highly fragmented, nine out of ten vineyards have less than half a hectare of vineyards. Molise produces around 27.5 million litres of wine per year on a total cultivation area of almost 6,000 hectares. The predominant part is rather rustic country wine, which is drunk predominantly in the region. Worth mentioning is the regional cuisine to which exactly these wines go so well, lots of lamb in all variations, many sausages, cappocollo and salami specialties, local cheese from the mountains, and strong pasta specialties, allegedly the thin spaghetti (alla chitarra) were once created here.

    Molise's share of total Italian wine production is only 0.5 per cent.

    Only just under 10% of all wines come from the four DOC zones. The grape variety range is very similar to that of Abruzzo: Trebbiano and Montepulciano dominate the cultivation. Common red varieties are also Aglianico. Sangiovese, Bombino Rosso and some Barbera. The white grape varieties are dominated by Falanghina, Fiano, Greco and Trebbiano. Molise's wine criticism in recent years has been drawn to attention by a rare autochthonous variety, the Tintilia, whose mineral, velvety spicy red wines are quite unique. SUPERIORE.DE
