Marsala Superiore Garibaldi DOC – Cantine Vinci
Rich amber color. Intense and exquisitely refined aroma, with distinct scents of dried figs, carob, caramel, burnt sugar, and sweet spices. On the palate, it is full, and warm with a sweet but not cloying aftertaste, and a long and delightful balsamic persistence on the finish. A magnificent dessert wine to accompany Sicilian dry and creamy pastries, and it also pairs very well with aged cheeses, dried fruits, and chocolate.

In 1997, in Marsala, Sicily, three families of winemakers decided to take over the brand “Cantine Vinci” and embark on a new adventure. They became the architects of transforming their grapes into wines of constant and undisputed quality. Transitioning from simple cultivators to winemakers was not easy, but the experience passed down from father to son through several generations helped them understand which clusters yielded the best quality wine and the most suitable times for grape harvesting. Producing exceptional grapes became the cornerstone from which they aimed to create wines of exquisite quality.
Over time, their expertise, willingness to learn, and dedication to producing great wines were recognised and rewarded. Today, Cantine Vinci can boast significant awards for their wine production, which, once tasted, are rarely forgotten.
Marsala is a fortified wine produced in the region of Sicily, Italy. It is one of the most famous Italian wines and has a long and storied history dating back to the late 18th century. The wine is named after the coastal town of Marsala, where it originated and where many of the vineyards are still located today.
The production of Marsala involves fortifying the wine by adding grape spirits, which increases its alcohol content and contributes to its unique flavour profile. The wine is aged in oak barrels, which imparts additional complexity and character.
Marsala is available in various styles, ranging from dry to sweet and it is categorised based on its aging process and sugar content. The aging periods can range from a minimum of one year to several decades, resulting in different levels of richness, intensity, and complexity.
In terms of flavour, it is known for its rich and deep notes, often described as having hints of dried fruits, caramel, nuts, and spices. The wine’s sweetness can vary, with the sweeter versions being used for dessert purposes, while drier styles are suitable for savoury dishes and cooking.
