Marco Tinessa - Ognostro Rosso 2017
Region: Taurasi / Campania
Plush and dark yet at the same time fresh and pure. The wine balances rich dark black and red fruit with a core of balsamic acid and complex earth notes.
This is the first wine produced by Marco, long before his cult following. Originally this was his only wine, produced in his tiny suburban garage. The name roughly translates as "Ink" in the Neapolitan dialect.
From a 25+ year old vineyard in the Montemarano region of Taurasi. Fermented and aged in a mix of clay amphora and fiberglass.
