Marco De Bartoli Marsala 1988 Oro Superiore Riserva DOC
Respect for “natural” tradition
Following the evolutionary logic of the historical-winemaking tradition of the area, Marco started the production of “his” Marsala Superiore, conceived and made in accordance with its “natural” tradition, fortified with a mistelle, made from fresh must, and aqua-vitae obtained from the same grapes from which the base wine is made.
How and When Marsala Superiore Riserva 1988
Marsala Superiore Riserva 1988 captivates at the end of a meal with desserts. Excellent pairing with blue cheeses with mustard or jam.

Classic expressions of Marsala Superiore Oro Riserva,
are distinguished by average aging in Soleras and the addition of mistelle (must from fresh grapes and brandy). Younger in the case of the 10-year-old and with a more austere character for the 1987, marking the year of fortification, the personality of these Marsalas offers sensations and emotions from another era.
3,500 vines per hectare with roots originating in the C.da Samperi Marsala area.
Guyot sapling and counter-espalier plants.
Manual selection of grapes, soft pressing, natural settling, traditional fermentation with indigenous yeasts in oak and chestnut barrels at room temperature. Some of the must is enriched with brandy for the preparation of mistelle that will be added to the wine. Over 10 years average in oak barrels of different sizes.
