2008 Di Majo Norante Biferno Ramitello (Italy, Molise, Biferno)

This is only OK. Very thick, very fruit forward, very sweet tannins and fruit, yet still somewhat bitter and rough around the edges. A sledgehammer of a wine that lacks charm and complexity. Definitely drinkable, preferably with strongly flavored food using tomato bases, such as Pizza and Pasta, but I don’t know that anything can be done as a good food pairing outside of those options. A disappointing wine despite its low price of $11 per bottle. I recommend looking at other options if you’re considering buying this.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
