Wine.comA 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.
88"The 2002 Ramitello Rosso (made from 80% Prugnolo and 20% Aglianico) is a successful effort from a challenging vintage. More tannic, rustic, and dense, without the charm and finesse of its less expensive sibling, it is a gutsy, savory wine displaying plenty of meaty, herbaceous black cherry, and new saddle leather characteristics."
