Molise, Italy

"Molise che NON esiste"...Molise that doesn't exist...this is a well worn phrase in Italian and one that comes with a variety of connotations. On one hand Molise is a "forgotten land", some would say a rural backwater while others would say it's Italy's last hidden gem. Like all things the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Two friends, one Molisano and one Abruzzese, Amir and Michele respectfully, began their new winemaking adventure with a vision to make Molise ESISTE! They want to showcase the land that is Molise, a place where traditions, terroirs and grape varieties mingle from surrounding regions, by making some very compelling natural wines. They are starting from scratch, making the first vintage of wines in some borrowed space at Lammidia in southern Abruzzo. All the grapes are from Molise just a short drive south where they farm a handful of hectares both owned and leased. All the fermentations are of course with native yeasts and thus far they are working without any added sulfur. We are pleased to introduce the wines of Giostra and look forward to watching them grow, tinker and evolve for years to come. Here's to a new Molise that does EXIST! 

65% Trebbiano (Toscano), 35% Falanghina. Half of the Trebbiano is destemmed and fermented for 4 days, and the other half carbonic maceration for 12 days. The Falanghina was destemmed and macerates on skins for 15 days. Both ferments are blended and aged in stainless steel for 4 months. (SelectioNaturel)
