Marsala is one of the most famous fortified wines in the world. It is produced exclusively in the city of Marsala, in the province of Trapani. Marsala wine is mainly known as a dessert wine, but it exists in different types. It can be sweet and fortified, dry or semi-dry, flavored, but always fragrant and enveloping. It can be used in the kitchen, as an aperitif, with sweet or savory, and can be enjoyed cold, hot or at room temperature. A versatile wine precisely because there are various types of grapes used in its preparation and different aging times and processing methods. The grapes used for the production of Marsala are: Grillo, Catarratto, Inzolia and Damaschino, among the white berried ones; Calabrian Pignatello, Nerello Mascalese and Nero d'Avola, among the red berried ones. Among the various types of flavoring we remember Marsala with almonds, Marsala with egg and coffee.
