Description

Details of wine

The symbolic wine of the Di Majo Norante winery is definitely the Rosso Riserva DOC "Don Luigi". Excellent wine, endowed with particular finesse and elegance, which is obtained by assembling the best grapes of Montepulciano and Agliano harvested from the vineyards cultivated in the Mantarosa area. The grapes grow on calcareous soils at just a hundred meters of altitude. Low production per hectare, organic attention in the field and traditional production processes give this wine a great personality. The grapes are vinified according to tradition, with a long contact of the must with the pomace, then passing through an aging in oak barrels.
Don Luigi is presented in the glass with a very garnet red color, on the nose it is extremely complex with a great mix of mature furtta and spices. In the mouth it is fresh and fleshy, with an important structure.

Color

Rubino scuro e concentrato.

Smell

Verticale, con un ventaglio olfattivo che schiude su sensazioni elegantissime di mirtilli e ribes nero, note di geranio e violetta, piccante di noce moscata, cannella e pepe di Sichuan, il ricordo di un cioccolatino ripieno alla menta, tabacco verde, ginepro, tocchi di incenso e balsamico affumicato.

Taste

Al palato emerge in tutta la sua piacevolezza e finezza, con ogni elemento perfettamente integrato nella struttura, dai tannini serici ad una morbidezza che avvolge e risponde ad una vena acido-sapida rinfrescante. Lunghissimo il finale in cui ritornano nette le sensazioni percepite all'olfatto, cui si aggiunge una memoria inchiostrata di altissima qualità e tracce di macchia mediterranea.

Pairings

Si abbina a carni rosse, cacciagione, piatti della grande cucina, formaggi.

The Di Majo Norantes have been wine producers since 1800, the old cellars underneath the square and in the old family building at Campomarino still remain to prove it. Commitement to grape growing was inherited first of all by Luigi and then by his son Alessio Di Majo. It continues today alongside research and experimentation. Di Majo Norante produces its own wines from grapes grown on the 85 hectare vineyard of the ancient fief of the Marquises Norante di Santa Cristina. Since the Di Majo Norante "wine making philosophy" is consistent with the traditional methods of grape-growing and wine production which is focussed on preserving all the characteristics of Mediterranean wine-making, the modern cellar will soon also have a barrel-store that originally was a 17th Century stone granary.
