Valerio Vini is the oldest continuously run winery in Molise, Italy. The founder, Prince Giovanni Pignatelli built the cellar in Monteroduni and planted vineyards in 1972. Antonio Valerio bought the property in 2004 and embarked on a long-term restoration project, beginning with the vineyards. The estate is planted with Sangiovese, Montepulciano and an indigenous varietal, Tintilia. Antonio has retained the help of renowned wine consultant, Dr. Riccardo Catarella and along with the recent DOC Pentro designation, this winery and region is poised for growth.

Tasting notes
An attractive bouquet of yellow and white florals introduce flavors of ripe stone fruit, acacia and melon. A backbone of minerality and acidity keeps all the components in line.

Wine maker notes
Particularly pleasing and elegant the white Fannia is produced by the collection of the best Falanghina grapes. This wine arises from the desire to bring this historic vineyard on the way back to his roots, which once belonged to the territory of Samnium Pentro. Balanced and harmonious, this valuable white wine reflects the high-level technical content which represents both the company’s passion and its distinctive personality.

Technical notes
The fruit was harvested from vines that are an average of 15 years old and were planted on medium textured clay based soils. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel to preserve freshness and aromatics.
