What is Tintilia?

Tintilia vine is deemed the most important vine of the Molise tradition. Some decades ago there were many doubts about its origin and its genetic and morphologic characteristics: nowadays it is possible to state that Tintilia vine arrived in Molise during the Spanish domination. Its name could hence be originated from “Tinto”, meaning “red” in spanish. Tintilia adjusted itself to the new environments thanks to its great spirit of adaptability, and spred over the whole territory, so as to be considered Molise’s most important variety, also used to give colour and body to existing wines.

We present one amoung our farms:

The farm Terresacre is located in the beautiful country of Montenero di Bisaccia, where the hills are gently stroked by the breeze of the Adriatic sea.

Molise’s winr making tradition lives of devotion, patience and a deep knowledge of all secrets of grapevine and olive tree, which are the basis of Terre Sacre’s work. Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Merlot e Sangiovese grapes, grow in more than 25 hectares of the farm’s land. In other 25 hectares, olive trees let their fruits ripen, in a privileged position that receives the beneficial influence of the sea climate.
