Di Majo Norante 2009 Ramitello Rosso, Molise DOC
Di Majo Norante is a wine estate of some 200 acres in the Molise region of Italy. Molise lies between Abruzzo and Pugila on the Adriatic coast. The family has produced wine since the 1800ís and is committed to producing first quality wines from indigenous grapes. This is a blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Aglianico sourced from the 45 acre Ramitello vineyard. Vines average about 25 years of age. Winemaker Ricardo Coltarella works to limit yields and bring in concentrated, richly flavored fruit. Aging is in Allier oak barrels for 18 months. The Wine Advocate scored it 91 points saying "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."

            Comments about Di Majo Norante 2009 Ramitello Rosso, Molise DOC:

            This wine is a long-time favorite but not always easy to find locally. The 2008 vintage remains readily available in this area but is now past its prime. Local retailers seem unable or unwilling to get the 2009 vintage, which online reviewers (notably WA) rate well and say is a keeper. Therefore, it was great to see it available on Wine Express. I've just tried one bottle so far of this 2009 Ramitello by Di Majo Norante. Although fine enough now, I'm holding a case with an expectation that this wine will get even better with a bit more time in the bottle, even though it's unlikely to be a very long-term keeper.

              Being a big fan of unusual blends this was a perfect choice. What a pleasant surprise this wine was! I've never tried this variey before and can tell it is as good as any, in a blind tasting I could probably mistake this for my favorite sangiovese. Not sure if this will cellar well, but very enjoyable now - 4 solid stars!

                Comments about Di Majo Norante 2009 Ramitello Rosso, Molise DOC:

                This is a fun, yet surprisingly serious, Montepulciano blend. The Aglianico adds that accent of dark fruit which meshes wonderfully with the herbal and floral components. It stays pretty light on its feet but still maintains a good core fruit structure, making it a really food friendly wine. Great value under $15!
