2011 Di Majo Norante Sangiovese

Molise, Italy


$12-$14 Retail


Since the 1800s, the Di Majo Norante family has cultivated grapes and produced wine in the Molise region in southern Italy. The terrain is mountainous and the winery's hillside vineyards are exposed to abundant sunshine and nourished by the coastal climate. This full-bodied, 100 percent sangiovese wine offers aromas of violets, red berries and hints of leather and spice. On the palate, taste layered flavors of sour cherry, blackberry, earthiness, oak notes and mild acidity. Decant 30 minutes before serving. Drink it with grilled meats, sausage, roasted fowl and game, bruschetta, charcuterie and aged cheeses. Buy it at: Hopper's Carte des Vins and Cost Plus World Market at Elmwood Shopping Center. Drink it at: Maximo's Italian Grill and Tony Mandina's Restaurant.
