“The research, conducted in 1811 for the will of Joachim Murat, King of Naples at the time, is an irreplaceable witness to the state of existence of the newly formed Province of the Kingdom, Molise, and contains valuable information on the art of making wine in that territory dawn 800. the “Tintilia” was introduced in the second half of the eighteenth century, during the rule of Bourbon Spain and its name derives presumably dall’etimo Tinto in Iberian language means “red.” It is acclimated very well, thanks to its remarkable qualities of adaptation, it is a rustic vine that is resistant to cold, disease and attack by mold, and quickly spread on the territory of Molise. For centuries it was considered by the local population the variety of excellent quality, however, the lack of art in making good wine, he sacrificed the potential of this excellent product. Recent trends in consumption, aimed to rediscover the originality and quality, have reawakened interest in this great vine tied to the ancient traditions of the people of Molise, which identifies itself as one of the top unknown of the Molise region.
The foresight and perseverance of some winemakers, who have always believed in the untapped potential of this grape led to obtain, in ‘last decade, surprising results, with the production of this great Tintilia Reserve “Castello di Gambatesa”, which today we have the pleasure and the honor to propose to the connoisseurs of the World “
