Di Majo Norante Sangiovese 2008
Sangiovese from Southern Italy, Italy
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
This Sangiovese exhibits a fresh bouquet of violets, woodland berries, spices and leather.
Deliciously smooth, plush and juicy on the palate with loads of ripe fruit, Di Majo Sangiovese is
recommended with pasta, pizza, sausages, parmigiana and grilled meats. A tremendous value!
"The 2008 Sangiovese Terre degli Osci is an incredibly delicious, full-bodied wine with gorgeous clarity and definition. Made in a bold, fruit-driven style, the wine offers terrific depth and a long, polished finish. This harmonious red is a knockout!"
The Wine Advocate
This is a smooth wine at a bargain price, not a 5, not really a 90+ but a good wine
Here's another good Italian wine, very reasonable, make's me think We're back in Italy!!!!!
Di Majo Norante Sangiovese is an old favorite of mine, it goes well with pastas, beef, and other similar meals, and is great as an additive in tomato sauce, yet it does not dominate the meal.
This wine is a good dinner companion that will soothe you and not fight with your steak for your attention.
Started out a bit simple, but opened up very nicely. I bought more.
This is a flavorful colorful wine with a bright taste.
This is a deliciously smooth Sangiovese. I had it with some chicken parm and baked zita. It would make a great full bodied, but friendly, wine for a party with multiple palettes. It has just enough bite to keep it from being a cloyingly vanilla exercise.
This was disappointing. It simply was too one dimensional and light.
Cannot understand what Fran B was drinking. Either the wines were damaged during shipment or she just got 2 bad bottles, but this wine is - year in and year out - fantastic.
A great wine. Moderate tannins, and an earthy taste, not too sweet either.
This was a very light cab that was very easy on the palate. Yet, the taste was great. I would purchase again.
The flavor was great. It goes well with pasta. I finished off nearly half the bottle in one sitting.
I have bought this wine every time I order. Just can't get enough.
This was really great and drank like a more expensive chianti.
I would buy again. I did buy again and sent as gift.
Tried this again - may have got a bad bottle before - this was very enjoyable - nice sipper while cooking - try it
not crazy about this sangiovese.
I love dry wine , but this was quite tart. If this was the only red wine on the planet , I'd deal with it. There's so many other wines to try, this would not get a second chance.
This one was definitely a miss.
I tried two bottles and it was like "bad and worse". Among the worst wine I have opened in years. One was totally undrinkable and poured down the drain. The second was little better. So much for gradings and remarks.
No nose, no taste, no nothing, no way ever again - not for me

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
