Details

Marsala Dolce Curatolo, delicious, sweet with intense nose of figs, almonds and sultanas. Silky and caramelized. Delicious with all kinds of desserts, such as bread and butter pudding with custard. Made with Grillo,Catarratto and Inzolia, which undergoes slow fermentation and fortification. Marsala is often overlooked as a dessert wine and many simply cook with it but this is superb and delicious to drink at the end of dinner with all manner of sticky puddings. Give it a try, if using it to make a sauce, have a couple of glasses as well! Established in 1875 by Vito Curatolo Arini, the winery is now run by the fifth generation of Curatolos, making it the oldest family-owned Marsala producing business. The base wine for the Dolce (sweet) version is 12% in alcohol and has a minimum residual sugar level of 20 grams per litre. Alcohol in the form of mistella (fresh grape must with added alcohol) and mosto cotto (concentrated fresh grape must which is traditionally 'cooked' until it reduces to a third of its initial volume) are then added to the base wine, giving it a final alcohol content of 17%, the desired sugar level and the traditional flavour. The wine is then aged for over five years (minimum two years by law) in 150 hectolitre Slovenian oak casks. Pretty serious and costly wine making for this price point.
