Deep ruby-red in color, Ramitello offers aromas of plums, forest fruits, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice. On the palate, a rich and velvety body pushes flavors to continue over a long and intriguing finish.
Di Majo Norante gives painstaking attention to grape selection and harvesting and to vinification methods in order to constantly upgrade the quality and the wholesomeness of its wines. Vines are treated only with fertilisers of organic and mineral origin and are defended by the regular removal of weeds and organic parasite control methods such as moths, while the pruning residues are removed to prevent any chance of infection. Old-fashioned methods and modern technologies make it possible to produce wines that are in many ways "organic" and which deserve being enjoyed to the full in the profound expression of their characteristic features.
"Ramitello has enjoyed its own cult following over the years. The 2012 Molise Rosso Ramitello (a blend of Montepulciano and Aglianico) is a delicious expression with a balanced approach that puts just as much emphasis on intensity as it does elegance. The bouquet reveals dark fruit tones with spice and lingering leather at the back. The mouthfeel is reinforced by firm tannic structure and bright acidity."
