Time plays a vital role in winemaking. Respecting nature’s time-scales and investing patience in each wine’s own maturing rhythms are vital to the balance of the final product. Whether it’s a white like Corvo Glicine, made to be drunk young, a deeply aged red like Duca Enrico or a Florio Marsala that is potentially eternal, the right time for every wine is ordained purely by the wine itself. The slow evolution in barrels inside the Marsala or Casteldaccia Cellars – and the necessary process of refinement in bottles before being put on the market – guarantee a product with an authentic and clearly defined personality. For any Florio Marsala, in particular, time is a precious ingredient that endows new nuances and richness to wines that do not fear contact with oxygen or the passage of time.
