Camillo de LellisWebsite : www.istitutoenologico.it/ita/aziende.php
Molise is the second-smallest region in Southern Italy, bordering Abruzzo, Lazio, Campania and Puglia. Its wines began to gain recognition in the 1980s with the creation of the Biferno and Pentro di Isernia DOCs. The Biferno is a Montepulciano and Aglianico blend, the former from the Adriatic coast and the latter from the warmer inland areas. The wine is typical of the appellation, bold and powerful, with a real rustic warmth to it. Recently it received glowing reviews from writers like Jancis Robinson and Olly Smith. We are adding a white Biferno to the immensely successful Riserva Red. It will be with us for the end of May and it is made with the typical white grape variety of the area: Bombino Bianco. Expect a rustic white wine with fruit and some structure!
