Rich, complex, nutty, mineral, deep and complex, dry Marsala is really it's own thing, it probably pairs with all kinds of foods, but to me it's a perfect aperitif, this one is family owned (and the best I've ever tasted), family ownership is pretty cool considering the long history of Marsala in the international wine trade

Traditional Perpeetum wine produced in the Marsala area with a winemaking system similar to Spanish solera, consisting in adding newer wine to a blend of vintages already aged in barrels full for 3/4. Unfortified and dry, it was the base wine to produce Marsala. Made of 100% Grillo grape. Unforgettable.

The Marsala before the British! Dried fruit, nuts and hazelnuts, perfect with pork.
