Marsala Superiore DOC 'Garibaldi' Dolce NV

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1980 Paolo Pellegrino founded a winery in the town of Marsala to produce fortified wine. Helped by the British Empire, Marsala became hugely successful and the rest is history. Marsala can be served chilled as an aperitif, in cocktails, as a dessert wine, or as an accompaniment to strong cheese. It is also a vital ingredient in many fine recipes. Carlo Pellegrino also built a winery on the island of Pantelleria in the late 90s to re-launch the famous Passiti and Moscati DOC. A volcanic outcrop of black lava rock situated off the arid Tunisian coast which forms Italy’s southernmost DOC region. The Passito is made with about 20% sun dried grapes added to the must; the result is an elegant and complex tasting wine. Pellegrino is the market leader for both Marsala and dessert wines from Pantelleria. His wines are appreciated in every corner of the world.

Gold Medal IWC In 1980 Paolo Pellegrino founded a winery in the town of Marsala in Sicily, Italy, to produce a fortified wine. The Victorians greatly enjoyed the wine and helped by the British Empire, Marsala became hugely successful. The rest is history. Today the Company is still family owned and managed and is now the undisputed market leader, appreciated in every corner of the world. Grapes are pressed, fermented and a boiled must, called Calamich, is added together with grape spirits. The young wine is then left to mature in large cherry-wood barrels. By law, Marsala Superiore requires 2 years ageing and can only be made from white grapes with the exception of the ruby style. Grapes : 100% Grillo Region : Italy / Sicily / Marsala Superiore DOC Maker : Gaspare Catalano Notes : Rich dark smooth and lusciously sweet with a hint of wood and caramel on the nose. Serve : With tarts, flans, pastries, shortcake biscuits and chocolate based desserts. ABV : 18% Suitable for Vegetarians



Tasting Notes:

Rich, dark, smooth and lusciously sweet with a hint of wood and caramel on the nose. Ideal with chocolate based desserts.
