Description

Unlike other fortified wines, the creation of Marsala can be pinpointed to one man, Englishman, John Woodhouse. Woodhouse was a connoisseur of Port, Madeira and Sherry and when he arrived in the city of Marsala in 1770, it wasn’t long before he thought to try fortifying the local wines. In 1773 he added 8 litres of grape brandy to 400-litre barrels of wine, shipped it to England, and, effectively Mar-sala was born. Marsala first received Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status in 1969. Today, Cantine Pellegrino, along with their competitors Cantine Florio, are recognised as the two top Marsala producers.

TASTING NOTES
Marsala has an intense amber colour. The nose has aromas of intense, persistent, pleasant notes of dried figs and hints of plum. Round taste with sweet and honeyed notes and hints of dried fig.
