Winemaker's Notes

A very cool Italian red - Ramitello is a blend of Sangiovese and Aglianico. This is serious stuff - rich, round and structured with great dark fruit, a wonderful value in Italian wine. Intense ruby red in color with violet reflections. The scent of plums comes through on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety with balanced flavors of plum and woodberries. Hints of licorice in the persistent finish. Excellent with richly flavored dishes, particularly meats, game and aged cheeses.
