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.
Wine maker notes
Balanced and harmonious, the Sannazzaro is the result of a careful selection of Montepulciano grapes and a measured amount of Aglianico. The quality of the grapes and the high potential of the region are cause for a wine that best suits the strong identity of the DOC region of Molise. The right combination of tradition and innovation makes actually this classy red wine Sannazzaro a basic reference point in our wine supply.

Technical notes
The vines were planted on medium-textured soils with a high percentage of clay and are, on average 15 years old. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel and aged for four months in new French oak.

Producer
The balance between traditions, research and application of advanced techniques make the Valerio winery a sort of factory motivated by the continues proposal of sophisticated technologies that don’t interfere with the knowledge of the terroir and the desire to recuperate the native vines. The company was born in 2004 with a young story, in reality enhances an old heart that ties up to the original company established in 1972 in the vines of Prince Giovanni Pignatelli, a family name since the XVII century in Monteroduni. The attention given to the old vines and to the territory, that time ago it had enjoyed the fame of the vines and its wines, it becomes the stimulus that animates the Valerio’s family first and then Antonio Valerio who will generate the recovery of the area of Macchia D’Isernia and the production of the wines which already represent an act of recognition by their names.
