A pretty blend of Montepulciano and Aglianico from the Molise DOC of Biferno. Biferno is a tiny appellation in Italy’s second smallest region, Molise. It neighbours Abruzzo which is renowned for its Montepulciano and Aglianico is perhaps better known from Campania and Basilicata.
The hint of rose petal, raspberry, cherry with a mushroom savoury edge will win you over every time. It is an easy drinker with a soft, velvety mouthful of creamy oak. It is a real bargain for the price. A new go-to red that is seriously good!
