The grapes are hand harvested and aged in a mix of stainless steel and large oak barrels to achieve a good balance of smoothness and softness while preserving the primary fruit characteristics of the Sangiovese.
Notes on the Producer
Di Majo Norante has been making wine since 1800, as is evidenced by the old cellars underneath the square and in the old family building at Campomarino. Commitment to grape growing was inherited first of all by Luigi and then by Alessio Di Majo and continues today alongside research and experimentation. Di Majo Norante produces its own wine from grapes grown in the 85 hectare vineyard of the ancient fief of the Marquises Norante di Santa Cristina.
The modern cellar will soon be flanked by a barrel store which was originally a 17th-century stone granary. The reason for this is that the Di Majo Norante wine-making philosophy is consistent with a traditional approach to grape growing and wine production, centred on preserving all the characteristics of Mediterranean wine-making.
