Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color with violet reflections. The scent of plums comes through on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety with balanced flavors of plum and woodberries. Hints of licorice in the persistent finish. Excellent with richly flavored dishes, particularly meats, game and aged cheeses.
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.
