Parker-Monica Larner 91: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. Of all the wineries in Molise, none stands taller than Di Majo Norante in terms of international visibility. Celebrated enologist Riccardo Cotarella helped to grow this brand thanks to his sophisticated and international style of winemaking. Molise wines owe much to this dynamic Alessio Di Majo and Riccardo Cotarella team. Today, the winery continues in that path to excellence and is an especially interesting option for those looking for exciting value wines from southern Italy.
