Di Majo Norante Ramitello 2011
Three and a half glasses
Four and a half glasses
Leather, caramel, dark fruit, light tannins but deep flavor. Rich and satisfying for a contemplative glass.
Smells a bit of mushrooms/truffles, then raspberries. Light, yet juicy. Clean finish. Good sipping wine.
Nice Montepulciano/Aglianco for every day.
It was tasty.
External Reviews for Di Majo Norante Ramitello
The 2009 Ramitello is a blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Aglianico that sees 18 months in French oak. Layers of smoke, grilled herbs, menthol and minerals are overlayed on a core of black fruit. The Ramitello shows serious power and intensity all the way through to the palate staining finish. Floral notes add lift and freshness on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.
A rich yet juicy red, balancing ripe dark cherry and fleshy plum fruit with layers of spice, underbrush and mocha. Compact, with an herb-tinged finish. Montepulciano and Aglianico. Drink now.
Firm tannin builds a tight frame around the lush cherry flavor and cedar spice in this montepulciano-aglianico blend. Chewy and dense, it needs the fat of a ribeye to absorb that tannin.
The 2002 Ramitello Rosso (made from 80% Prugnolo and 20% Aglianico) is a successful effort from a challenging vintage. More tannic, rustic, and dense, without the charm and finesse of its less expensive sibling, it is a gutsy, savory wine displaying plenty of meaty, herbaceous black cherry, and new saddle leather characteristics.
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.
WA 92pts - Winemaker Notes - This cru is made mainly from a selection of the best Montepulciano and Aglianico grapes grown in the Ramitello vineyard of Campomarino. Full, mellow and velvety wine; with a perfect blend of flavors such as plum, undergrowth and hints of leather and liquorice, deep ruby red in colour with violet reflections. Ideal with rich dishes, especially white and red meats, game and ripe cheeses.
