Marsala Vergine 1999 is a dry liqueur wine aged in large oak barrels where a slow oxidative aging process takes place.
It should be tasted after at least 5-15 min at a temperature of 15-20 , in order to give time to the wine to fully release its aromas.
The wine may have some slight deposit because it is neither filtered nor chilled to preserve the organoleptic qualities.

Marsala is a historic fortified wine. It was invented by a British merchant (John Woodhouse) in 1773 who was able to export it all over the world thanks to his relations with Admiral Nelson, who bought large quantities for his fleet.

Later, it also became one of the first Italian denominations.

It is a Sicilian wine characterized by the oxidative scent obtained thanks to its long aging in large oak barrels of at least 10,000 L (can be visited in the cellar).

In this process part of the wine evaporates year after year, and small quantities of air enter the barrel giving its characteristic aroma.

Nowadays it can be produced, aged and bottled only in the city of Marsala and in the neighboring towns.

The winery , specialized in the production of Marsala wines, offers four types of Marsala: Marsala Vergine, Marsala SOM, Marsala Fine and Marsala superiore Garibaldi dolce.

The ANGILERI line is a selection of the most representative wines from the Marsala region, made with the finest grapes from the hilly inland of Marsala.

This line is dedicated to Vitalba Angileri, wife of Ercole Alagna, who actively manages her family’s vineyards.
