What are you looking for when you approach a wine?

O’gnostro – in Italian “Ink“, Campania dialect name for wine – was born from the desire to bring the uniqueness of a territory into the bottle.

I started with an Aglianico vineyard in the heart of the Taurasi appellation, in Montemarano (AV), looking for the right balance of the plant (in terms of yield per hectare), to obtain a correct ripening of the grapes. This is particularly important in an area where grapes are usually harvested in November.

Bring the uniqueness of a territory to the table

100% Fiano grapes from two plots located in the municipality of Lapio, from 30-60 year old vines. A very short contact with the skins, just to allow the fermentation to begin, and then a white vinification, in steel or cement, according to the characteristics of the year. The same goes for the aging, from 9 to 12 months in concrete or steel, and then continued with at least 1 year in the bottle
