What makes a Biferno Rosso

Biferno River Molise

Of all Molise’s wine styles Biferno Rosso seems to be the most popular in the UK. As a blend of two well-loved Italian grape varieties, Montepulciano & Aglianico, this may not come as a surprise. However, it's my guess that many people who enjoy this wine may not know much about it.

With this post I hope to provide insight into the source of the Biferno name, what makes a Biferno Rosso, the different styles and finally I'll make a humble recommendation of a Biferno Rosso Riserva, that we feel, is one of the best examples around.

To help in the above goal I’ve created a helpful infographic that provides a quick summary of each of the points discussed.
