1980 Intorcia Marsala Vergine Riserva Secco
Francesco Intorcia's declared aim is to make Marsala to be drunk with food.
Outstanding Marsala with a bright golden yellow colour and a lively and warm shade of antique gold. Intense and complex, with a good structure and gentle herbaceous notes that recall hay. Obvious fruity and citrus notes including dried fruit and toasted walnuts with a mineral salty finish. Elegant and persistent.
In 2010 Francesco Intorcia took his family owned business, which had been founded in 1930 and which has its cellars in the very heart of Marsala, to an altogether higher level. With his father Antonio’s enthusiastic support, he decided to create a range of super premium wines. He left the choice of their first offering to the older man, who selected three vats of the 1980 vintage: Vergine, Dolce and Semisecco. Francesco also chose to concentrate future production of these craft Marsala on the best five hectares of their fifty-hectare estate. The wines from the very heart of the Intorcia vineyards carry the proud name ‘HERITAGE’.
