Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 8 June, 2021

DOC area for red and rosé wines in the Italian region of Molise. This used to be a variant of the DOC wine Del Molise, until a separate DOC classification was issued in 2011. The vineyards cover 65 hectares of vineyards in 59 municipalities in the province of Campobasso and 17 municipalities in the province of Isernia. The Rosso (also known as Riserva) and Rosato wine types are made from at least 95% of the Tintilia del Molise variety.

The Italian region with the capital Campobasso lies in the middle of the boot on the Adriatic Sea. Until the 1960s, the vineyards were allocated to the neighbouring region of Abruzzo in the north. Molise is divided into the two provinces of Campobasso and Isernia. The name is said to go back to a noble family in the Middle Ages. Vineyards are cultivated in the hills of the Sannio mountains at an altitude of up to 600 metres above sea level. The largely small vineyards, 90% of which are less than half a hectare, are highly fragmented. The vineyards cover about 5,400 hectares. A moderate climate prevails.

The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the land ideal for...

Synonym for the grape varieties Mazuelo and Tintilia del Molise. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2006, there is also supposed to be an independent variety of this name, which is cultivated in small quantities in the regions of Campania and Sardinia (ex Wine Grapes). In 2016, however, no stocks were reported under this name (Kym Anderson).
