Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 80% Prugnolo and 20% Aglianico

Intensely ruby-red in color with violet hues, Ramitello offers subtle scents of plums, cherries, blackberry, boysenberry, spices and vanilla . On the palate, Ramitello is full-bodied and lush yet velvety with a perfect balance between the supple flavors of wild berries and the pleasing acidity. Soft tannins frame an elegant and long finish with spice and licorice aromas.

Excellent with richly flavored dishes, meats, cured meats, small game and aged cheeses. Allow to breathe prior to serving.

My Notes:

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.
