Tintilia

Tintilia del Molise Rosso DOP

The ruby red with reflections bordering on orange, does not let light easily pass through, allowing the sense of smell to detect the first signs. Slowly emerges undisputed the ripe red fruit note, which features cherry, accompanied by light and elegant vegetal notes with a dried flowers and licorice ending. The taste is warm and soft with tannin that has already reached its elegance, despite it being well tamed; sensations of licorice and spices may be recalled, and in the long lasting ending we reach a hint of a chocolate with cherry liqueur.
