The "region that does not exist", according to some. A local and original food and wine heritage, according to others. Of course, the figures on wine production in Molise, a region which until a few decades ago was an integral part of the Abruzzi, are low. But the richness of the terroirs, from the maritime one of the Adriatic coast to the volcanic one of the innermost regional extremities, is undeniable. The marly and clayey soils that characterise most of the Molise wine-growing areas, moreover, from ancient Pentri to the present day, boast a valuable and appreciated history.
