Did you know that as well as being a famous dessert wine, marsala served chilledcan become the key player in surprising food and wine pairings?
Discover our tips for a modern, sophisticated aperitif with Florio marsala, to enjoy in good company and enliven warm summer evenings.
Marsala & cheese: for tasty appetizers paired with a fine wine, we suggest accompanying morsels of savoury cheeses – such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano – with the dry, smooth flavour of BaglioFlorio Marsala Vergine DOC, or with the dry, harmonious Terre Arse.
These wines also sublimely enhance the still-young aromas of medium mature cheeses such as Piacentinu Ennese, Fontina or Caciotta.
For blue cheeses with a more pronounced taste – such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Stilton – on the other hand, try an exciting pairing with Donna Franca – with its warm, ample, soft flavours.
Marsala & flavours of the sea: Baglio Florio and Terre Arse are also excellent paired with refined smoked fish or tuna roe appetizers for a combination as unexpected as it is fascinating.
Marsala & cocktails: VecchioFlorio Mediterraneo, VecchioFlorio 150 andVecchioFlorio Oriental are summer cocktails made with Vecchio Florio, superior dry marsala. Three extraordinary recipes for a unique cocktail – or after dinner drink – with unexpected freshness.
The perfect companion for your cocktails, Vecchio Florio is also excellent to enjoy with medium mature cheeses, toasted almonds and tuna roe.
