2012 MARSALA SUPERIORE RISERVA, Vito Curatolo Arini. Sicily
Alcohol Percentage: 18%
Area: Marsala is made in Trapani province, western Sicily. It is made by blending white wine, grape alcohol, 'mosto cotto' (cooked grape must) and 'mistella' (grape juice with added alcohol). Superiore Riserva is the most aged (and most serious) version. It is just off-dry (28 grammes per litre of residual sugar).
Grape Variety: Grillo, Cataratto and Inzolia grapes aged in Slavonian oak casks - a mix of French and American barrique and tonneau, for over 5 years
Producer: The Curatolo family have managed the estate since 1875 - one of the few still upholding the region's reputation for quality and authenticiity
Food Match: They recommend it serve chilled as an aperitif or, more realistically in the UK, with cheese or even with tea and cake
