Details

In kitchen lore, Marsala means a splash in the pan -- a cheap fortified Sicilian cooking wine in screw-cap bottles, often found next to the vinegar on grocery shelves. This image appalls Marco De Bartoli, a rebel against the overcaramelized, alcoholic concoction. Along with other Marsalas that are flavored for the mass market with chocolate or egg, it debases Marsala's historic reputation as a serious competitor of premium sherry.

Marsala made at Mr. De Bartoli's estate at Samperi, a suburb of the Sicilian wine-shipping town of Marsala, illustrate why Burton Anderson, in his "Wine Atlas of Italy" (Simon & Schuster), says Mr. De Bartoli produces "the most admired wines of western Sicily."

A 50/50 blend of Grillo and Inzolia. The Grillo is fermented in oak barrels, whilst the Inzolia must is enriched with aqua vitae to prepare it for the special mistella that is added to the wine. Sweetened just enough to soften the edges and give a glossier, more luscious body than many Marsala’s. True vini di meditazione.

Enjoy with cheese (Tomme and Goronzola go particularly well in our opinion) or elaborate desserts with ricotta and cream. Best cooled in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before serving, this sublime Marsala should be sipped sparingly.
