Camillo De Lellis Biferno

Camillo De Lellis Biferno

Molise is the second-smallest region in Southern Italy, bordering Abruzzo, Lazio, Campagnia and Puglia. Its wines began to gain recognition in the 1980's with the creation of the Biferno and Pentro di Isernia DOCs. The Biferno is a Montepulciano and Aglianico blend, the former from the Adriatic coast and the latter from the warmer inland areas.

The wine is typical of the appelation, bold and powerful, with a real rustic warmth to it.

Vineyards

Grown in Molise, Central Italy - of which only 2% is graded as DOC - grapes are subject to excellent exposure, calcaerous soils and a maritime climate. Vines are 15 to 25 years old.

Vinification

Traditional vinification with 10-12 days of maceration at a controlled temperature of 25°-26°C. The wine is aged for 18 months in large oak barrels, and then for 18 months in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Plush, easy-drinking red from central Italy, a fragrance of blueberries with a warm underlay of spice followed by a mouthful of damson jam and plum cake.

Enjoy with wood oven pizzas. Try it with a Capricciosa, or a Calzone for a twist on a classic. This is also great with shepherds pie.
