Bottle size and vintage
Di Majo Norante, a winery in existence since the 19th Century, is today the most internationally renowned winery in Italy's Molise region. The company is run by Alessio di Majo, who counts upon the assistance of the world-famous winemaker Riccardo Cotarella in the production of some easy-going wines, modern but not excessively so, always pleasurable and excellent value for money. Made with indigenous varieties originating from the winery's 100 plus hectares of vineyards, wine production is firmly focused on quality rather than quantity, and on an approach that shows respect for the environment and the preservation of traditional wine-making techniques.
Ramitello is considered an entry wine, yet it offers all the cleanness and enjoyment that you might expect from a superior wine.
Obtained from the Montepulciano and Aglianico varieties, from the former it takes on its expressive richness and intensity, while from the latter it picks up a rather austere elegance. On the nose, it offers a bouquet which highlights the intensity of the black berries, dried plums, India ink, leather, spices, black olives and balsamic hints, all combining into a sensual and quite mysterious whole. On the palate, Ramitello lives up to expectations and exhibits a structure which ably balances its alcohol content and firm tannins. Its acidity and long fruity persistence make it a most inviting drink and one to enjoy at a leisurely pace... A wine with personality, full, well-balanced and simply delicious.
