Legends..

It is said that the eldest son of Count Carafa of Ferrazzano (1300 c.a.) is engaged to the daughter of a high official of the Kingdom of Naples, of Spanish origin. The latter claims that the wedding banquet was served wine which arrives from his home nation. The drink gained unanimous praise from all the guests. Shortly after the young wife died and her husband decided to plant, just as a reminder of the beloved, vineyards for the production of wine that had crowned their union. In Molise language, “Tintilia” is nothing but a derivation of the name from the dialect word “Tenta” (Tinta). In the Molise’s language, in fact, it is also called “Tintiglia” or “Tentiglia” given the particular features of this grape staining (Tentiglia = dye) of dark red any garment.
