Marsala Superiore Ambra Secco som Doc wine from Sicily

Packaging: 6 bottles of 0.75 liters

The Marsala Superiore Ambra Secco som Doc wine from Sicily has a fascinating history.

It is said that the English merchant John Woodhouse, in 1773, was looking for soda ash useful for the production of soap in England.

A storm forced him to dock in the port of Marsala and in a tavern he was literally conquered by the taste of the local wine.

Later, his business acumen pushed him to bring a supply of this wine to the United Kingdom with the addition of brandy for its preservation.

The success of Marsala was such that it also encouraged Lord Orazio Nelson to purchase large quantities of wine for the sailors of his "Home Fleet".

At Trafalgar, in 1805, Nelson also won Marsala, which from that day onwards became "The Victory Wine".

In 1806 another Englishman, Benjamin Ingham, arrived in Sicily looking for raw materials for his family's textile business.

And having also understood the great potential of Sicilian wine, he opened a cellar and began to successfully export the product to the Americas and distant Australia.

Close your eyes for a moment and let yourself be caressed by the wind and warmed by the sun, breathe the air that surrounds you, full of scents: that of the sea, of the Mediterranean vegetation, of the earth.

You can't go wrong....You are in Marsala, the "land of wine" where our Vino Marsala Superiore Ambra Secco som Doc di Sicilia is produced. No other Italian city can boast such a varied wine production.
With wit and foresight, the English who landed there in the 18th century noticed this well and immediately understood that something very similar to Spanish and Portuguese fortified wines could be obtained from the local grapes: that wine which later became famous throughout the world. with the name “Marsala”.

In this land so planted with vines, in 1997 our three families of winemakers decided to take over the “Cantine Vinci” brand, producer of the excellent Marsala Superiore Ambra Secco som Doc wine from Sicily, and thus to begin a new adventure which saw them as creators of transformation of its own grapes into wines of constant and undisputed quality.
Going from simple growers to winemakers was not easy, but the experience handed down from father to son for several generations served to make us understand from which bunches to obtain the best quality wine, what were the most suitable times for harvesting the grapes, such as soils that were able to best enhance the physiological and vegetative-productive properties of the different cultivars.

Producing valuable grapes has thus become the key principle from which to start to produce wines of excellent quality such as the Vino Marsala Superiore Ambra Secco som Doc di Sicilia.

Over time, wisdom, the willingness to learn and the goal of producing great wines have been recognized and rewarded. Thus today, the Vinci cellars can boast important recognitions obtained for the production of wines which, once tasted, can hardly be forgotten.
