Delicious, balanced and refined, Ostinato Fine Ambra Secco is a dry Marsala that is produced according to traditional methods now rarely seen in the appellation, especially in Fine expressions. It begins with its ‘alto grado’ base wine, from late-harvest, low-yielding Grillo, Inzolia and Catarratto old vines. Its higher natural ABV means the wine is less reliant on fortification and is more expressive of Marsala’s indelible terroir. Extended aging beyond the minimum Fine requirements produce a Marsala that resonates with deep vinous character.
Enjoy with dry-cured meats and a wide variety of cheeses, including Robiola, Taleggio and all manner of Pecorino cheeses. It also excels in a variety of cocktail applications—a 1:1 with Hayman’s London Dry Gin and Fine Ambra Secco is highly recommended—as well in elevating classics like Veal or Chicken Marsala, Saltimbocca or sautéed mushrooms. Once opened, this wine will keep for up to six months.
