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

A little funky on the nose with lovely suggestions of dried orange peels, almond hulls, and beeswax over lightly toasty, chocolaty wild berry fruit. This is very well balanced in the mouth with lovely acidity that is very well integrated, lending this a bit of a blueberry character. There’s a fine bed of austere tannins, but the bright, fresh fruit keeps them fairly well covered. The finish turns slightly drying and shows good length with a briary note to the wild blueberry fruit. Nice little wine with good fruit and tension. 87pts
