More information

 The Contado Aglianico del Molise Riserva DOC by Di Majo Norante shines with ruby red colour and slightly orange reflections. On the nose expressive, fruity aromas reminiscent of elderberry jam, ripe sour cherries and wild berries. On the palate it is soft, juicy, very harmonious, pleasantly fresh and well balanced between fullness and elegance. Well-integrated tannins and a touch of almonds characterize the Contado Aglianico tastefully. Long, sustainable and warm finish.

The Contado Aglianico del Molise Riserva from Di Majo Norante is one of the most prestigious wines in the Molise region and a wonderfully powerful red wine as it is in the beech


Vinification of Contado Aglianico Riserva by Di Majo Norante

The Aglianico grape variety came to Italy in antiquity with the ancient Greeks. Although Aglianico today does not determine Italy as much as Sangiovese, Primitivo & Co. - Pope Paolo III and his cellar master Sante Lancierio already counted Aglianico wines among the most important red wines in Italy.

The grapes for the Contado Aglianico from Di Majo Norante are gently ground and the must is fermented on the mash. After vinification, the Contado matures partly in stainless steel, partly in the barrique (Alliers and Nevers oak) for 18 months. The Contado can then be refined in the bottle for a further 6 months before it is finally placed on the market.

Food recommendation for Contado by Di Majo Norante

Contado is a wonderful accompaniment to tasty preparations, pasta with wild sauces, red meat, game and ripe cheeses. Best serving temperature for this red wine from southern Italy at 16°-18°C.
