The nose is sharp with pepper and rich in blackberry, and the medium-body freshness is laden with a buttery cocoa wash and a mildly tart finish.
decent. well with pizza
A robust, dry and velvety wine. Full bodied.

Indigenous grape varietals are playing more important roles in the world's wines (despite the falsehoods promoted in the disingenuous movie, Mondovino), and the 2003 Aglianico Contado IGT is fashioned from 100% Aglianico that has been reclaimed by Riccardo Cotarella. It is a stunning Italian red. Notes of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, almond paste, blackberries, and currants jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored offering. Boasting fabulous intensity, medium to full body, beautiful purity, and nicely integrated acidity, wood, and tannin, it was aged in both large neutral oak ovals and smaller barrels. This wine represents incredible value for the money.
The 2005 Aglianico Contado is a great example of Aglianico from Molise. There is terrific vibrancy and focus here, despite the wine's big size, with generous fruit layered into black pepper and wild herbs. This full-bodied red is ready to go now, and should continue to improve over the following years. The estate gives the Contado 18 months in oak of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.
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.
