Giacalone 1944 Marsala Stravecchio

Along with Port and Sherry, Marsala is a fortified wine - all three are made in similar processes: base wines fermented, fortified with grape spirit, then matured and blended in various methods.

This is an incredibly old and rare bottle of Marsala from the Italian island of Sicily.  To qualify for the categorisation of "Stravecchio" ("Extra Old"), the fortified wine was aged in Marsala's In-Perpetuum  (aka Solera) barrel system for a minimum of 10 years.

This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage
