Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a ruby red color with a slight hint of orange. It is ample and intense, with hints of ripe fruit. Mellow and velvety, it is very harmonic, full-bodied and with just the right tannic content and hints of almonds.

Ideal with savory foods, starters, game and cheese.

About Di Majo Norante:

The Di Majo Norante winery is located to the north of the Gargano in Molise on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina. This estate has been dedicated to the cultivation of vines since the 1800's.

In the 1960's a modern cantina was constructed and vines were replanted. Optimal exposure, constant breezes during the summer, excellent soil composition and a slope toward the Sciabolone and Madonna Grande valleys, blend together to create a particularly favorable environment for the production of wine.

Alessio Di Majo has hired renowned enologist, Riccardo Cotarella, as a consultant in order to ensure consistent, high quality production for all their wines. The Di Majo family is dedicated to producing quality wine at an outstanding value and practicing environmentally sound agriculture.
