Tintilia del Molise Rosso DOP

 

It ‘s an impenetrable ruby red color that greets us, with a pale purple reflections. The nose is initially shy even though it reveals distinctly red berries combined with nutmeg. Allowing it to rest for a while, the oxygen will make it more available to the contact: this wine gives us a mint, and a balsa wood to appreciate slowly, surrounded by violet petals. To the mouth softness and warmth lie at every corner of the palate, showing a well-directed tannin combined with a fair dose of freshness. Memories of plum jam, vanilla, sweet tobacco and chocolate emerge, whose elegant assembly would not abandon your mouth whether you wanted it or not.
