Deep ruby-red in color, Ramitello offers aromas of plums, forest fruits, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice. On the palate, a rich and velvety body pushes flavors to continue over a long and intriguing finish.
Pair this wine with grilled steaks, Port sauces, Scandinavian-style venison, and beef bourgignon.
"Soft and plush, this blend of Montepulciano (80%) and Aglianico has beautiful intensity to its long-lasting aromas of blackberry, maraschino, chocolate, exotic spice and leather. There's a bright touch of mint and licorice on the finish. Editors' Choice."
"The 2010 Biferno Rosso Ramitello, a 80% Montepulciano/20% Aglianico blend, is highly distinctive. Dark red cherries, herbs licorice and tobacco flesh out in the glass. The Ramitello is huge, opulent and rich, with firm yet well-integrated tannins that provide a backbone to support the fruit. This is another fabulous value from Di Majo Norante."
