BIFERNO ROSSO RISERVA 2011 - D.O.C.

"PRIVATE COLLECTION" RED WINE

The “Collezione Privata” is a Limited Edition collection of the Tombacco winery. The Biferno D.O.C. Riserva is a unique wine, a symbol of Central Italy. With a history starting in ancienty Greece, the Biferno D.O.C. Riserva is an ancestral wine. The new Tombacco generation has taken this historic wine and turned it into a high quality modern icon. 

 

With vines growing on hills of the countryside close to Campobasso, The 400 metre altitude, exposes the bunches to low maximum temperatures and a mild thermic excursion. This terroir condition favours the development of complex primary flavours in the berries, and improves the grape acidity. The unique soil in the area, made of limestone clay, and a small percentage of sand, provides the wine with a special mineral and sapid flavour.
