Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Ramitello is a blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Aglianico that sees 18 months in French oak. Layers of smoke, grilled herbs, menthol and minerals are overlayed on a core of black fruit. The Ramitello shows serious power and intensity all the way through to the palate staining finish. Floral notes add lift and freshness on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (Jun 2011)

This pure, engaging red opens with sweet, perfumed aromatics that lead to layers of dark cherries, smoke, earthiness and tar. Clean, mineral notes help give the wine its notable persistence and length.
