Wine Advocate 91 "Ramitello has enjoyed its own cult following over the years. The 2012 Molise Rosso Ramitello (a blend of Montepulciano and Aglianico) is a delicious expression with a balanced approach that puts just as much emphasis on intensity as it does elegance. The bouquet reveals dark fruit
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2012 Aglianico del Molise Riserva Contado shows a savory and spicy character that sets this wine apart from other Aglianico-based wines in Campania and Puglia. This expression seems to have more nerve and energy with grilled herb, licorice, black tar and ripe blackberry fruit.
Bright red in color, aromas of violets and red berries complement undertones of leather and anise. On the palate, this wine is dry and mellow with smooth tannins that make for a crowd-pleasing, easy-to-drink red wine.Pair this wine with antipasti, Bolognese sauces, game, and ripe cheeses.
Wine Spectator 88" Balanced, with grippy tannins and flavors of black currant, blackberry, fresh rosemary, cocoa powder and licorice drop. Offers a tangy finish, showing a hint of black olive. Drink now through 2019. 6,700 cases made. " –AN
