Negroamaro 2015 - Ognissole
The Negroamaro of Ognissole comes from grapes grown in Fragagnano estate near Manduria The calcareous soil gives this wine a pleasant persistence and softness. Ideal to accompany a pasta with tomato sauce, pizzas and soups of legumes and vegetables.
The name “Ognissole”, of Greek origin, is mentioned in a poem of Leonida di Taranto (third Century B.C.) that describes this land as full of charm and covered by the sun for most of the day. Ognissole embodies the essence of Puglia where the sun and the influence of the sea give richness, character and elegance to the grapes. The logo is a detailed re-interpretation of a mosaic found in a “domus” built between the end of the third century and the beginning of the second century B.C., now stored in the National Archeological Museum of Taranto.
Ognissole is the result of a dream: create a single entrepreneurial project encompassing the richness of the whole Puglia region and its native varietals. To capture such potential, Ognissole is structured in two independent estates, each one with its vineyards and its winery:
•in the Manduria Estate, Primitivo and Negroamaro dominate the scene;
•in the Castel Monte area, the Cefalicchio Estate, byodamic with Demeter certification since 1992, focuses mostly on Nero di Troia and Moscato.
