About Di Majo Norante 

The history of Di Majo Norante goes back to 1800. The local village square still has the original wine cellars bellow it, as does the family home at Campomarino. Today the family farms 85 hectares and have been committed to making wine organically for a number of years. Grass and flowers grow between the vines to promote biodiversity and ensure good soil health, and predator insects are encouraged to deal with vine parasites without the need for harsh pesticides. They have also invested in solar power to run the winery as they certainly are not in short supply of sunshine hours in Molise.

Tasting Notes

The wine is aged for a minimum of three years and one of those is in oak, Aglianico needs it to help soften the edges of this big grippy wine. Such a beautiful complex wine showing a nose of dense ripe red fruit, savoury almost umami notes and notes of coca. There is plenty of tannin, but time in oak has mellowed the beast and softened the edges. A bold wine needs big food and beef brisket comes to mind. If you haven’t tried Aglianico before, welcome to your new favourite red grape variety.
