In the hills of Molise, on the border with Abruzzo, on an elevation from which you can see the sea and the nearby islands, stand the vineyards of the Cipressi family. In the thirties the grandfather Antonio started to produce wine from Montepulciano, Trebbiano and Tintilia grapes. Today the tradition is carried on by the third generation. Great attention and energy is devoted to the cultivation of vines, the planting of new vineyards and the constant improvement of quality.
Over the years, Nicolino's father Nicolino became increasingly involved in the use of the autochthonous grape variety of Molise: the Tintilia. The Cipressi family is now the largest producer of this rare variety, which covers only 3% of the regional grape varieties. Cipressi may well be considered the saviour of the Tintilia.
