User Reviews for Di Majo Norante Aglianico Molise Contado

Winemaker's Notes:

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 1800s. In the 1960s a modern cantina was constructed and vines were replanted in the Ramitello zone. 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 favourable environment for the production of wine. Alessio Di Majo strives to produce the best quality possible at a price that is extremely affordable to the consumer. To ensure consistently high quality, he has hired renowned oenologist, Riccardo Cotarella, as a consultant. In another example of his dedication to quality wine and environmentally sound agriculture, Alessio di Majo makes his wines from organically grown grapes. The winery received certification from AIAB (Associazione Italiana per l'Agricoltura Biologica) in 1997. In another example of his dedication to quality wine and environmentally sound agriculture, Alessio di Majo makes his wines from organically grown grapes. The winery received certification from AIAB (Associazione Italiana per l'Agricoltura Biologica) in 1997. Contado is from 100% Aglianico grown on Italy's south-eastern coast. The grapes were harvested in late October/early November and macerated in contact with the skins for 20-30 days. After fermentation, the wine was aged in a combination of large casks and barrique for 2-3 years. Contado is ruby red in colour with light garnet reflections. The full and intense bouquet reveals ample amounts of mature fruit. The wine is soft and velvety on the palate and full-bodied, with balanced tannins and hints of almond in the lingering finish.
