Claudio Cipressi

Claudio Cipressi

The cellar of Claudio Cipressi is located in San Felice del Molise, in the province of Campobasso, 500 meters far from the molisano appennine hills. Family business, was founded in the 1930s by his grandfather Antonio. Claudius has to rediscover an autochthonous red berry in the area and is almost lost; The Tintillia, where today the company Cipressi cultivates almost 30% of the entire region. Along with the enthusiasm that distinguishes him, Claudio cultivates 16 hectares of vineyards reared with Tintillia, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo and Falanghina, which give rise to 7 labels; 4 with only Tintillia including the top of the company, "Il Macchiarossa", a Tintilia and Montepulciano blend, a Montepulciano purity, and finally 2 wines produced with Falanghina and Trebbiano. During the grape harvest, Claudio makes a manic selection of grapes, and in the cellar it only resorts to traditional vinification and to careful use of refinements in wooden barrels to cover the fruit of the wine. A hard and challenging job is what Claudio does for a constant improvement of his wines.
