ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Di Majo Norante Contado Riserva

Di Majo Norante Contado Riserva is a dark and sultry wine made from organic Aglianico grown on hillsides in Molise. Ashen soils, crushed stone, animal musk, plum, and exotic savory spices can all be found in the bouquet. It’s velvety yet not weighty, energized by bright acidity with tart black fruits, minerals, and grippy tannins that saturate the senses. These are unseen depths here which are currently restrained by Contado’s hulking structure, yet there’s also a harmony that tempts the imagination as to what’s to come. Currants, wild herbs, salted licorice, and hints of tobacco linger long.

About Di Majo Norante

Founded in 1968, the Di Majo estate cultivates more than 200 acres under vine. In order to ensure consistent, high-quality production for all the estate’s wines, Alessio Di Majo hired renowned oenologist Riccardo Cotarella as a consultant. In addition to producing quality wine at an outstanding value, the Di Majo family is dedicated to practicing environmentally sound agriculture. The Di Majo Norante winery sits on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina in the region of Molise, along the Adriatic Sea between Puglia and Abruzzo. The cultivation of vines in this area dates back to 500 BC when the region was inhabited by two pre-Roman civilizations, the Sanniti, and the Osci. The estate has been dedicated to growing vines since the 1800s. In the 1960s a modern cantina was constructed and vines were replanted in the Ramitello area. Optimal exposure, constant breezes during the summer, excellent soil composition, and a slope toward the Sciabolone and Madonna Grande valleys combine to create a particularly favorable environment for the production of wine here.
