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 Cantine D’Uva wine estate, founded in the 1940s, is located on the gentle slopes of the lower part of the Molise region, which was created in 1963 by its separation from the Abruzzi region.

The property is situated in Larino, at an average altitude of 820 ft above sea level, where the composition of the soil is highly suited to the cultivation of vines. The D’Uva family has been living in this area since more than 60 years.
