  4. Ramitello Biferno Rosso DOC

This wine is made from a selection of the best Montepulciano and Aglianico grapes grown in the Ramitello vineyard.  After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and barriques for eighteen months. The final wine shows firm structure yet ripe, accessible fruit.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, Ramitello offers aromas of plums, forest fruits, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice.  On the palate, a rich and velvety body pushes flavors to continue over a long and intriguing finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled steaks, Port sauces, Scandinavian-style venison, and beef bourgignon.
