Intense amber. Typical of Marsala. Medium dry style which is fine and delicate. This wine has similar characteristics to sherry with hints of vanilla and caramel. Used extensively in Italian cooking but it also makes a fine aperitif.

Picking at the end of August and the successive drying of the grapes give this sweet wine its characteristic golden colour with amber reflections. In its intense persistent aroma you can recognise hints of apricot honey and dried figs. Best with fruit flans and hard cheeses.
This is a deep amber-coloured dessert Marsala, not unlike a sweet Pedro Ximenex in flavour profile. It's raisiny on the nose with a hint of cinnamon, lots of Christmas fruitcake flavours and a long, very moreish finish. Try it with a blue cheese or a ripe triple cream.
