Di Majo Norante Red Blend Terre Degli Osci IGT Ramitello 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

88 Points Robert Parker: `The 2004 Ramitello Terre degli Osci (80% Prugnolo 20% Aglianico) reveals excellent length and a soft perfumed personality with tertiary leather and spice overtones. Though not especially vibrant it is a joy to drink now and over the next year or two. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009.`

The Di Majo Norante winery is located on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina in the region of Molise, along on the Adriatic Sea between Puglia and Abruzzo. The cultivation of vines in this area dates back to 500 BC when the region was inhabited by the Sanniti and the Osci, two pre-Roman civilizations. The estate has been winegrowing since the 1800’s. Massive investment was made in the cellar and vineyards in the 1960’s. A modern winery was constructed and vineyards were replanted in the Ramitello area. Vineyards in the Martarosa - Ramitello zone benefit from optimal conditions for producing high quality winegrapes. Exposure is ideal with constant breezes during the summer to keep the vineyards cool and dry. The terroir is calcareous and well drained as it’s situated on slopes of the Sciabolone and Madonna Grande valleys. The Di Majo family is dedicated to practicing environmentally sound agriculture. The vineyard received organic certification from AIAB (Associazione Italiana per l'Agricoltura Biologica) in 1997. Alessio Di Majo, the current proprietor and winemaker, has hired renowned oenologist Riccardo Cotarella as a consultant in order to ensure consistent, high quality for all the estate’s wines. This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese and is classified IGT Terre degli Osci. The grapes are harvested in October. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks with maceration on the skins for a duration of almost a month! This extended maceration allows the wine to fully extract the color, flavor and aromas from the skins. After the malolactic fermentation has completed the wine is aged for six months more in tanks then bottled. Serve this versatile, easy-drinking wine with just about anything! Read less

Leather, caramel, dark fruit, light tannins but deep flavor. Rich and satisfying for a contemplative glass.

This wine is full bodied, soft and velvety with an aftertaste of plum and licorice and he aromas of blackberry and egriot cherry. The color is intense ruby red with violet reflections.
