no,Molise is a region of Southern Italy bordering Abruzzo, Puglia, Lazio and Campania. It is the second smallest region of Italy (Aosta Valley is the smallest). Agriculture,especially wine and olive oil, plays a major role in the economy of Molise. The region is very hilly and the climate varies from continental to maritime. The soil consists mostly of clay loam but the terroir can also be morainic. The annual production of Molise wine is only 400.000hl and because of the limited supply wine from Molise is often harder to find than wines from other Italian regions. There are currently only four DOC wines produced in Molise – Biferno DOC, Molise DOC, Pentro di Isernia DOC and Tintilia DOC.
Trebbiano Toscano, Malvasia, Falanghina and Bombino are the most widely planted white grape varieties. Bombino plays a crucial role for wine making in Southern Italy. It is found in many blends and often used to mass-produce cheap wine. Montepulciano, Aglianico and to some extend Sangiovese are considered to be the most important red grape varieties. Some of the red wines are similar to the ones produced in the Basilicata, Abruzzo and Marche regions.
