Cantina Tombacco Biferno Riserva Montepulciano

Molise, Italy

The Tombacco wines with their delightful vintage labels pay homage to the first labels ever released by the winery, designed by the great grandfather of the current owner nearly a century ago. The wines themselves are unashamedly robust and flavoursome – absolutely typical of their roots in Campania and Abruzzo – and will transport you instantly to the sunny terraces of the Amalfi Coast and classic pizzerias of Naples.

This is a big, ripe red, guaranteed to please those full-bodied Shiraz lovers. Hailing from Molise, a small region located above Puglia and Campania, this red is 80% Montepulciano, and is completed with 20% Aglianico which adds its brooding tannins to the lifted dark red berry flavours. On the palate there is an abundance of smooth, velvety fruit (think black cherry and raspberry) with some dried herb, spice and cigar-box notes. Bright acidity balances the wine and makes it a perfect accompaniment to rustic Italian fare.
