    • Sangiovese Terra degli Osci IGT 2017

      Sangiovese Terra degli Osci IGT 2017

      Excellent, pure Sangiovese at a top price: ruby red, strong, very typical bouquet of dark berries, tobacco and leather, well structured on the palate with cherry and plum notes, excellent length and elegant, fine fruity finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine definitely took me by surprise. I did not expect the density or the richness that you get with the 2017 Sangiovese from Italy's tiny Molise region. This hot-vintage expression of a grape planted across central Italy (mostly in the Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna regions) offers unique concentration and darkness here in Southern Italy. From afar, it could be mistaken for a Cabernet or a Merlot. The aromas are also atypical. Here, you get stronger elements of black cherry, spice and pencil shavings. This mid-weight wine delivers terrific value." Robert Parker

      "Light raisin character and lots of smoky oak. Full-bodied, round and juicy with velvety tannins." James Suckling

    • Falanghina del Molise DOC 2018

      Falanghina del Molise DOC 2018

      Falanghina from the Molise DOC - the Sannites not only appreciated this wine, they considered it one of the best. Golden yellow, pleasantly fresh bouquet, in which a hint of broom mixes with the exotic fruit scent. Rich, full taste, reminiscent of pomegranate, always fresh and well structured. SUPERIORE.DE

      Greco Molise DOC 2018

      According to Aristoteles, the ancient clones of the Greco vine come from Tessaglia. The most famous of them is the "Aminea Gemina Maior", from which this wine is made. Brilliant straw yellow and a wide, intense fruity scent. Versatile fruit aromas in a harmonious taste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep yellow. Apple and pear on the fragrant nose. Then rich and dense, with flavors similar to the aromas. The nicely persistent finish shows tannic and oily qualities. Nicely done." Vinous

      Aglianico del Molise DOC 2014 (BIO)

      The pure Aglianico Biorganic shows itself in a dense ruby violet. Fascinating scent of black currant and blackberry with notes of liquorice, smoke and earth. Of beautiful purity, rich and with spicy accents on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark bright red-ruby. Expressive aromas and flavors of redcurrant, licorice, and cocoa, complicated by underbrush and pungently perfumed flowers. Bright, silky and ripe but with lovely energy giving the herbal and red fruit flavors a crisp quality. Finishes with a hint of menthol and repeating red cherry nuances." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    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
