Marsala Superiore Riserva Semisecco Aegusa, Florio

New

This refined and imposing vintage expresses a thousand nuances of spices and fruit, hypnotising with its surprisingly long and complex mineral taste of liquorice root and burnt honey. A rare Florio Riserva, produced only with the best vintage of each decade, Aegusa reposes in the stillness of the Florio Wine Cellars, maintaining the authenticity of single vintages. The following vintage years are available: 1941, 1952, 1964, 1974, 1989, 1994, 2001
