Marsala Superiore Secco DOC

Marsala Superiore Red Wine

 

Marsala is a fortified wine which is produced around the town of Marsala on the western coast of Sicily. In recent years Marsala has undergone a renaissance that is rapidly restoring it to the ranks of the world’s great wines.

Style - White

Grape - 50% Grillo, 50% Catarratto

Vintage - 2018

Size - 75cl

ABV -18%

Winemaker - Vinci Vini

Region - Sicily

Made from local grape varieties, Grillo and Catarratto, our Marsala is ‘Superiore’ meaning that it has been aged for at least 2 years in oak barrels. It is also classified as ‘secco’ – the driest version of Marsala and it is quite sweet. It has an intense amber colour with golden highlights. On the nose it is intense and very complex, with hints of ripe, white fruits in alcohol, hazelnuts, bitter almonds and pine nuts; the bouquet has delicate hints of oak, vanilla and cinnamon.

The taste is dry, sweetish, soft, velvety with a pleasant sense of aromatic hints. Marsala can be enjoyed as an aperitivo or dessert wine. It pairs well with almond sweets which are traditional of sicilian confectionery, dry fruits and half seasoned artisan cheeses.

Some history

It is said that in 1773 an English trader, John Woodhouse, was looking for soda ash for the production of soaps. A storm forced him to land in the port of Marsala and in a tavern he developed a taste for the local wine. Later on, his flair for business drove him to take a supply of this wine to the UK with the addition of brandy for its preservation. The success of Marsala wine was so great even Lord Horatio Nelson bought large quantities of this wine for the sailors of his “Home Fleet”. After the Battle of Trafalgar it became known as “The Victory Wine”.In 1806 another Englishman, Benjamin Ingham, arrived in Sicily looking for raw material for his cloth factory. He too discovered the potential of this Sicilian wine and opened a winery exporting Marsala to America & Australia.
