Marsala Superiore Oro Riserva DOC

£93.00

50cl

This wine, with its memorable bouquet of perfumes and aromas, was conceived and produced to respect its “natural” tradition: it is fortified with a “mistella” produced from fresh grape must and fruit brandy obtained from the same grapes of the base wine.
The grapes are picked and selected by hand, soft pressed, naturally decanted and traditionally fermented at room temperature, in oak and chestnut barrels. Part of the must is enriched with grape brandy for the preparation of “mistella” which is later added to the wine. The wine ages over 20 years in large oak and chestnut vats of different sizes.

THE MAKER: Marco de Bartoli

Marco De Bartoli strongly believed in the viticulture of his territory. Thus, at the end of the Seventies, he rediscovered and nourished the deep root between the traditional and innovative methods of working the soil and winemaking. Looking for an excellent quality, combined with the respect for Sicilian wine traditions, Marco chose native grapes to create traditional and territorial wines and highly innovative ones too.
