Di Majo Norante Sangiovese 2005 wine review by (PB)


This wine is from the Molise region of Italy called the Terra Degli OSCi. It has a fresh cherry bouquet with a nose that smells of burnt wood and smoke with a little pepper.

It is fairly big in the mouth with a smoky palate but shallow fruit.

With some air time, Light chocolate and dried cherries are present. Milk chocolate up front with light fruit and steely minerals with a smoky finish.

This wine was only $8.50 but I am undecided about it which usually means it is just so-so. Still for the money, what the heck? Raise a glass.

Sangiovese grapes have always been a part of my favorite wines. What is it about that grape that makes such a full flavored wine??!! I know that it is the main component of the Chianti blend in Italy. Young sangiovese has fresh fruity flavours of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavours when aged in barrels...
