Rinomata Tombacco Biferno Riserva, Molise, Italy 2016
Biferno is a small region established in 1983 along the Biferno river valley on Molise. The climate is rather dry but benefits from the cooling influence of the Adriatic Sea, and the soil is composed of a combination of limestone and clay. Rinomata Tombacco’s Biferno is a traditional blend of Montepulciano and Aglianico. Because it is classified as a Riserva, the wine must be legally aged for at least 3 years before release. For Rinomata Tombacco this means the wine is in oak for 24-36 months depending on each barrel’s need, plus another year in bottle. Aromas of cherry, plums and spice are wrapped in vanilla and cinnamon from the barrels. Great with roasted meats or hard cheeses.
