This Sangiovese is made at The Di Majo Norante winery, which 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.
I consider it to be a tremendous value wine that delivers both quality and varietal integrity, and is the perfect match with pasta, pizza, sausages, parmigiana and various grilled meats.
On the nose I get wonderful aromas of violet and red fruits with traces of leather and earth.
On the palate the wine is quite bold and fruit driven, and delivers flavors of ripe black cherry, red currant, leather, spice, and a touch of earth. It has a long a somewhat polished finish and over delivers for the price. 89+ points
