Winemaker Notes

Certified organic. Made from 100% Aglianico grown in estate vineyards in the southeastern region of Molise. Aged in a combination of large casks and barriques for two to three years.

Contado is ruby-red in color with light garnet hues. The full and intense bouquet reveals ample amounts of ripe currants and blackberries, well balanced by spicy notes of almonds, rhubarb and herbs. Contado is full-bodied with fine-grained tannins surrounding a soft, velvety and lingering finish.

Recommended with full-flavored first courses, wild game, fillet mignon and other roasted meats. Excellent with cheeses.

"I doubt readers will find a more budget-friendly Aglianico than Di Majo Norante's 2004 Aglianico del Molise Contado. This wonderfully nuanced wine reveals terrific intensity and energy on the palate, with plenty of fruit, cocoa and roasted coffee bean flavors that flow from the glass. At once fully-flavored, yet delicate, it is an exceptional effort at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2011." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

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.
