This is an extraordinary, golden dessert wine with intense and penetrating notes of honey, marron glacé, dried apricot, marzipan, candied lemon, dried mint and jasmine. It’s smooth, rich and long lasting in the mouth. The wine has personality and power and boasts magnetic appeal across the board.
This dessert wine ventures far beyond classic dried fruit and nuts to offer fresh peach, apricot lavender, lemon rind, dried basil and pine nuts. It has a winning combination of herbs and sweetness that recalls tea with honey and lemon. Made from late-harvest (as late as November) and very rare Moscato Reale grapes.
Oozing richness and opulence, the bouquet delivers a steady stream of honey, flower and apricot aromas. On the palate, this is silky and creamy, save for a tingling touch of acidity that keeps the palate refreshed.
This is a delicate and intricate red blend from Molise that offers well-dosed aromas of black fruit, cola, balsam notes and mineral. The wine is expertly extracted to yield thick and luscious flavors lavished over its dense concentration. This is an excellent example of the potential of winemaking from Italy’s least-known region.
Apianae opens with a pretty golden color and delivers loads of beautiful, sweet flavors at an attractively low price. Orange zest, dried apricot and butterscotch are evident components of the bouquet.
Soft and plush, this blend of Montepulciano (80%) and Aglianico has beautiful intensity to its long-lasting aromas of blackberry, maraschino, chocolate, exotic spice and leather. There’s a bright touch of mint and licorice on the finish.
A proud signature of Molise, Don Luigi Riserva is a lovely Montepulciano-based wine—with 10% Aglianico—that opens with dark aromas of leather, tobacco, bitter chocolate and plump blackberry. It delivers solid tannins backed by smooth concentration.
Deep, ripe and syrupy on the nose, with leather, brambly red fruit and licorice. Seemingly on the ripe side, but still juicy and fresh. The plum and berry fruit is mature, while proper aging has added a smoky edge along with carob, earth and coffee nuances.
