Don Luigi was made in tribute to Don Luigi Di Majo Norante, the patriarch of this estate. The wine undergoes a period of extended maceration to achieve incredible color and concentration before being refined further in Allier and Tronçais barriques for 12-18 months. The resulting wine is a benchmark expression of Montepulciano from the Molise region.
Opaque ruby in color with garnet reflections, Don Luigi is a richly aromatic wine with layered notes of ripe wild berries, prunes, charcoal, cocoa, and licorice. On the palate, well-balanced tannins and a full-bodied mouthfeel make for an unforgettable wine experience.
Pair this wine with baked pasta dishes, salami sauces, farsumagru, and mint-herb-crusted lamb shank.
