Winemaking Information

Soft press and slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of 20-25°C. The base wine is of a more or less intense straw color, with a 12% alcohol content and a minimum residual sugar level of 20g/l. Alcohol, mistella (fresh grape must with added alcohol) and mosto cotto (concentrated fresh grape must which is traditionally “cooked” until it reduces to a third of its original volume) are then added to the base wine, thus giving it respectively its final alcohol content, the desired sugar level and the traditional flavor.

For Colombo Sweet Marsala, we add then 10% of superior Marsala, Marsala Superiore Sweet, which is aged for minimum 4 years.
