This is a Riserva (the 2013 regular version is reviewed separately). Frankly, this was not as good as the regular and cost $10 more. Now, that may be a vintage thing and I don't have a lot of experience with this grape (Tintilia) or region (Molise). Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has boysenberries and smoke. On the palate, this has some boysenberries but not a lot. A slight bitter note on the finish. Some acidity. Its a fine wine that is drinking well right now but not the value the regular bottling is. Perhaps it is just in an awkward phase and needs time.
Every year I get invited to a St. Joseph's day celebration by a friend who is originally from Molise. It's a BYO event at a local hall with hundreds of people, tons of homemade food and a lot of fun. I try to bring appropriate wines. There are not a lot of wines made in Molisse and available here in the US. This one retails for about $20 and is really good and a bit different. Tintilia is the name of the grape. I liked this vintage slightly more than a 2011 I had a couple of years ago. Purple in color.
