Targa 1840 Cantine Florio Marsala Superiore Semisecco Riserva 2007 Cl 50
Targa is an elegant marsala, destined for longevity, perfect for meditation and dessert but surprising served chilled as an aperitif paired with unexpected ingredients such as avocado and blue cheese.

Florio wines are born in a magical corner in the heart of the Mediterranean, the “Fascia del Sole,” an area in southwestern Sicily characterized by a special relationship between microclimate, vineyard and soil. Here Florio, a contemporary craftsman with an intense, unusual and precious soul, has been able to sublimate the uniqueness of a territory into wines capable of expressing a universe of unexpected sensations. An innovator by tradition, over nearly two centuries Florio has gained unique experience, reinterpreting the past with modern winemaking technologies to arrive at the production of wines of great prestige, to be savored on multiple occasions: fortified wines, marsala, passiti and sparkling wines to be discovered, or rediscovered, as an original aperitif, to accompany a dessert or to be sipped while meditating. Products deeply linked to their territories of origin, but presented in a modern guise. Florio is a brand that can boast a unique and fascinating history with a family of great pioneers. But not only that. Continuous search for quality operated through the selection of the best fruits, careful and innovative processing of raw materials, with the aim of creating products that evoke the Terroir of origin, habitats that are unrepeatable in terms of variety and vocated to inimitable productions, and a production philosophy oriented towards excellence and attention to detail. All this is Florio: for nearly 200 years, quality through passion.
