The Wines of Molise

Wines of MoliseAlthough it may seem to be but a footnote in Abruzzo’s regional profile, Molise is not merely a minor division of its more established neighbor. In fact, if there’s any region that deserves credit for Molise’s viticultural persona, it’s Campania—a zone that is directly evidenced in/receives direct attribution in Molise’s varietal constituency. While Abruzzo receives its due in the extensive roles that Trebbiano and Montepulciano play in the wines of the three major DOCs (Pentro d’Isernia, Biferno, and Molise), Campania’s Falanghina and Aglianico are not only more prevalent, but offer a greater qualitative contribution, endowing the local wines with a character that’s normally reserved for wines intended for a broader audience.
