All you need to know about Marsala

 

Sicilian wines come from ancient times, even though before that the grapes of the South were taken from the North and processed for their wines. The region has always had its own specific wine, which is still very looked for: let's talk about Marsala. Let's dispel the myth that it is a sweet wine, specific for homemade sweets. It exists sweet, as well as dry and semi-dry.

In order to make Marsala, grapes are usually harvested and vinified, then different options can be chosen cooked must, brandy or brandy and cooked must can be added. Instead for a Marsala Vergine nothing is added, its natural alcohol by volume is more than enough to reach 18%. After that, it is aged in 400-liter casks. This allows the typical sweet aroma with notes of dried fruit and Spanish Sherry which characterize it. The taste is in fact as sweet even without the addition of must because the grapes used to make it are already sugary by themselves. The color changes according to the grape that makes it, in Sicily it is produced with Grillo, Cataratto, Ansonica and Damaschino.

 

Marsala wine is an excellent dessert wine, it goes well with cookies, dried fruit and small pastries. The sweeter one instead exalts the taste of seasoned cheese and dishes made of white meat and white fish.

Forbes in these days declared Sicily as the first region in Italy for wines. Two years before, the region had already been mentioned by the magazine, which indicated it among the best destinations in Italy where to travel in 2020.

 

Sicily is a region rich in culture, art and famous monuments, stories and an excellent destination for vacations because of its beautiful sea. If we talk about the cuisine, there is really a lot to say and to try and about Sicilian wines: there is really a lot to know and to taste according to one's taste.

 

Sicily, according to Forbes, is the largest wine region of Italy, a real wine continent, because it has 98 thousand hectares of vineyards and a mild climate almost all year round which favors the cultivation. Compared to the other wines of the South, the wine of the region can always be cool, thanks to the altitude and to the wind almost always present.

 

Sicily has entered the wine industry, thanks to its main grape varieties: Nero d'Avola and Grillo, the latter was used to make Marsala wine, in the nineteenth century.

 

There are many other famous grapes, all thanks to the 70 autochthonous grapes of Sicily, safeguarded and studied at the Botanical Garden of Palermo and that some viticulturists are eager to cultivate, giving them a new life.
