Il Fondatore – Marsala Vergine Riserva 1978 DOC
Dedicated to Carlo Martinez, an intelligent and dynamic young man, who, together with his brother Francesco, founded the company in 1866. His enterprising spirit continues to live across 6 generations in a long company history, just like the persistence of the taste of the Il Fondatore Riserve. In the mix which is the process phase of production which defines the Marsala typology, only alcohol is added to the base DOC wine as a start-up to the aging in oak barrels.
