Marsala Superiore Secco 10 Years Old

With intense notes of wild almonds, dates, sultanas and vanilla, it is soft and elegant on the palate with a pleasant dried fruit and orange finish. Served slightly cool it is a perfect aperitif and it pairs perfectly with aged pecorino and fig jam, marzipan cakes or dark chocolate desserts.
Wine Making

Grillo, Inzolia and Catarratto grapes, hand picked late september.

Destemming, maceration and fermentation at controlled temperature of 20-25C° in stainless steel vats for approx. 7 days with frequent delestages. When all the sugars are svolti, skin maceration continues for another 7 days for optimal tannin extraction, very important for the ageing process. Fortification is done by adding alcohol up to 18% then follows mistella and cooked must. Ageing in Slavonian casks, French and American barriques and tonneaux.

Food Pairing

Served slightly cool at 10°/14°C°, it is ideal as an aperitif. Pairs well with aged cheese, almond paste cookies or traditional ricotta cakes like the Sicilian classic Cannolo.
