Delicious, multilayered and energetic. Ripe black fruit, tobacco, earth and a bit of umami funk. — a year ago

Sator Gran Maestro Tintilia del Molise 2011

@delectable this is called “gran maestro.” Wow. Amazing wine. Nose is lilacs. Almost volnay. Maybe crossed with really good old school napanir Bordeaux. Sweet blackberries. Gorgeous. Very deep. Amplitude is 10/10. Huge nostril filler. Like an atomizers inside your nostrils. A $200 nose.

Palate is wonderful. A cross between a perfect blueberry and a perfect wild just picked blackberry. Fresh. Some spice. Some licorice. Insane texture. But it’s all about the balance. Just coats the palate and sticks there. Lingering finish. Juicy. Blackberry licorice. 30 seconds at least.

Needs 30 minutes to integrate.

Buy it all.

Envínate Listan Negro Tintilia 2018

Cranberry, orange bitters and sweet cherry notes (and a heck of a stink!) make this old-vine, high-altitude volcanic soil red from Tenerife a very interesting experience.

High acidity, moderate tannin, really well poised - a tightrope of a wine that offers sweet cherry one second then searing orange zest another. The acidity carries through the finish exceptionally well, making this a wine of great balance.

Fascinating to try this alongside Wiston Estate’s 2014 Rosé, a completely different wine on paper but one that somehow shares so many characteristics with this.

Beat Tintilia 2016

Yup, that’s a ‘16 wine throwing off serious sediment. From Molise, & the Tintilla varietal. Black fruited, Funky, Delicious, very dry, give it some air (& decant, duh). Steep Hill importer- give’em some skin. 12.5%. — a year ago

Opalia Tintilia Del Molise 2016

Smells of cherries, raspberries, strawberries... lots of red fruit, almost a candy smell. First flavors are plums, sour cherries followed by a soft sour taste that lingers before fading gently away. Nice bit of acid too. A really delicious wine! Wish I bought more. — 6 months ago

Vigne del Sorbo Tintilia del Molise 2014

Excellent for 10 euros! The fruit is dark, ripe and warm but it’s well balanced by savory ashy and earthy notes. Good length and complexity. The 15% alcohol made its presence known. No call for a digestive...
@Delectable Wine this is a red, not Sauvignon

Licorice, spice, nuts, there is red berry fruit, dark fruits, nut powder, chestnut cask, blood, game, smoky, feral. Super juicy, super refined, big, late breaking tannins, unctuous texture, opulent and almost creamy but stunning finish. — 2 years ago
