Wine Notes: Sangiovese

NOVO Wine Notes

Wine Notes: Di Majo Norante 2013 Sangiovese Terre degli Osci IGT, Italy

Sangiovese is most often thought of as Tuscany’s shining star as it is the backbone of their famed Chiantis and Brunellos. However, this wonderful food friendly grape grows elsewhere in Italy (and the rest of the world) and is used to produce gems like this wine by Di Majo Morante in South Central Italy’s Molise region.

A vibrant ruby in the glass, and floral on the nose, the Di Majo Norante Sangiovese has layers of cherry and spice on the palate, with fresh acidity and smooth tannins that make it super food friendly and approachable. A perfect wine to have on hand at home for everyday, this wine goes beautifully with so many dishes on Novo’s menu. Pair it up with the Sicilian Meatballs, Sausage Orecchiette, and be sure that it is the perfect compliment for any of NOVO’s fantastic pizzas and the Calzone. Cheers!
