The Di Majo Norante winery is located to the north of the Gargano in Molise on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina. This estate has been dedicated to the cultivation of vines since the 1800s. In the 1960s a modern cantina was constructed and vines were replanted in the Ramitello zone. Optimal exposure, constant breezes during the summer, excellent soil composition and a slope toward the Sciabolone and Madonna Grande valleys, blend together to create a particularly favorable environment for the production of wine.
Alessio Di Majo strives to produce the best quality possible at a price that is extremely affordable to the consumer. To insure consistenly high quality, he has hired renowned enologist, Riccardo Cotarella as a consultant.
In another example of his dedication to quality wine and environmentally sound agriculture, Alessio di Majo makes his wines from organically grown grapes. The winery received certification from AIAB (Associazione Italiana per Agricoltura Biologica) in 1997.

Di Majo Norante Winery San Giorgio Sangiovese
This may be the finest value in pure Sangiovese in the marketplace...A great buy, it is an embarrassment to 90% of the California Sangioveses that sell for three to five times the price...and are inferior wines. This deep ruby-colored 2000 offers an expressive perfume of sweet black cherries, new saddle leather, and spice. This fleshy, fruit-driven Sangiovese is a total treat to drink.
