Description

Marsala is a fortified wine dry or sweet, produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala, Sicily. Marsala first received DOC status in 1969. Lombardo Marsala fine is made from 3 local varieties, Cataratto, Inzolia and Grillo in the west of Sicily. After gentle pressing the fermentation temperature was moderated to achieve the ideal sugar content. Once this sugar level was achieved, alcohol was added stopping the fermentation achieving a final alcohol of 17.5%. The wine was aged for one year in oak casks. An interesting, dynamic dessert wine or a wonderful addition to stews, soups and egg nogs, as well as a good match with hard cheese or gorgonzola.
