This pure, engaging red opens with sweet, perfumed aromatics that lead to layers of dark cherries, smoke, earthiness and tar. Clean, mineral notes help give the wine its notable persistence and length.

Antonio Galloni(2008 Vintage) "The 2008 Ramitello, a blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Aglianico, boasts fabulous clarity and freshness, with layers of vibrant dark cherries and plums that meld together with notable grace. Smoke, tar, menthol and licorice develop in the glass, giving the wine even more dimensions of expression. This is a terrific effort from Di Majo Norante. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013."
