  • This wine is an intensely fragrant red made from the Tintilia variety. It has signature spicy notes layered with cherry, plum, and aromatic herbal overtones. The wine is soft, with a delicate texture and a long, fruity finish. The grapes were carefully selected by hand, and then destemmed, crushed, and macerated on the skins for two weeks at temperatures of 26°C. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks to retain the characteristics of the Tintilia variety. After gentle pressing, the young wines were blended in stainless steel before maturation, which lasted for four months. Bottling occurred from March to April of the year following the harvest.

Winery

The vines are grown in the San Martino in the Pensilis subzone of DOC Molise in Southern Central Italy. Located at altitudes 300 metres above sea level, the vineyard covers 4.5 hectares of medium-textured soils where the Tintilia vines thrive. Tintilia is a rare variety, unique to Molise and closest to the region's signature variety. Taking its name from its dark-coloured berries, the black-skinned variety is very low-yielding and was progressively abandoned and replaced with higher-yielding varieties. Although it is still only grown in tiny quantities, it is making a revival, producing high quality wines with excellent structure and acidity. The Tenimenti Grieco vines were planted in 2008 at a density of 4,200 per hectare and are spur-cordon trained. The climate is Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers and mild winters. The vineyard is heavily influenced by its proximity to the Adriatic Sea; the coastal winds breeze through the vines, aerating the canopy and keeping the vines healthy. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and is working towards the Equalitas certification. Harvesting occurs at the end of September when the fruit has reached optimal ripeness. The wine name translates as 200 metres, which refers to the minimum altitude above sea level that the production regulations require the vines to be planted at to produce the so-called hilltop grape of Tintilia Molise DOC.
