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 Azienda Agricola Cianfagna is located on the rolling hills of Molise in the town of Acquaviva Collecroce, custodian of history, culture and agricultural traditions. The contours of the land offers a healthy and natural landscape, where the work in the fields is marked by colours, scents and long silences.

The agricultural acticity handed down for generations make this farm a protagonist in its territory.
