"The 2009 Aglianico del Molise Contado impresses for its density, balance and depth. Hints of smoke and tar add complexity to the rich, powerful fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024." (06/11)
"Made from 100% Aglianico grown in estate vineyards in the southeastern region of Molise. The grapes are hand-harvested in late October and undergo an extended period of maceration for incredible concentration and flavor. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is matured in a combination ofÂ stainless steel and barriques for eighteen months. The resulting wine is layered and complex."
"Contado is ruby-red in color with light garnet reflections. The nose reveals ample aromas of ripe currants, blackberries, sweet spice, almonds, rhubarb and herbs. Contado is full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a soft, velvety mouthfeel. Recommended with full-flavored first courses, wild game, filet mignon and other roasted meats."-Importer
"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 dedicated to growing vines since the 1800s."
"In the 1960s a modern cantina was constructed and vines were replanted in the Ramitello area. Optimal exposure, constant breezes during the summer, excellent soil composition and a slope toward the Sciabolone and Madonna Grande valleys, combine to create a particularly favorable environment for the production of wine. Alessio Di Majo has hired renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella as a consultant in order to ensure consistent, high quality production for all the estate's wines. In addition to producing quality wine at an outstanding value, the Di Majo family is dedicated to practicing environmentally sound agriculture." -Importer
