La TP7 – Marsala Vergine Riserva 2003 DOC
Il Marsala Vergine from the 2003 Riserve is dedicated to the first automobile that the Martinez family ever purchased: a Diatto TP7. In the early 1900s, Gaspare Martinez, a 2nd generation exponent, loaned it to King Vittorio Emanuele III during his trip to Sicily. In the mix which is the process phase of the production that defines the typology of Marsala, to the base DOC wine of Grillo grapes only alcohol was added to then begin the aging in oak barrels.
Controlled designation of Origin “Marsala” – Law 851 from 28.11.1984
Hand-picked mature grapes with high sugar level, soft pressing, fermentation and preparation of the concia, with only alcohol being added to the wine obtained.
From 2003 in 220 liters oak barriques
In stainless steel for around three months.
If stored away from heat and light sources, the wine will keep for an unlimited period and will continue to improve over time.
After being opened, if the bottle is sealed again using a bottle stopper and stored in a dry place, away from heat and light sources, it will keep well for a number of months.
Marsala Vergine is the ideal way to round off a meal as an alternative to spirits with their higher alcohol content. This wine has a complex, incisive nature which means that it goes well with very mature cheeses, oysters, foie gras, cured fish roe and braised meat
