For those who want to experience new pairings and live the food-wine marriage in a new and satisfying way.
Florio Marsala wines – unique trail blazers since 1833 – constitute a world of their own. Stored for decades in the silence of the brand’s ancient Wine Cellars in the city of Marsala, these products are created via an oxidative process and above all need time and contact with oxygen in order to perfectly mature their sumptuously refined perfumes and amazing flavours.
Deeply appreciated as ‘meditation wines’ or dessert wines, these special Marsalas have contributed to the history of Italian winemaking, and to bringing the Mediterranean flavours and aromas of Sicilian intensity to the world. Today Florio is ready to initiate a new way of experiencing food and wine, providing an experience that will satisfy the curiosity of Wine Lovers and Gourmets ever hungry for new tastes.
For its Gourmet Project, Florio has chosen its most eclectic Marsalas – Terre Arse, Targa and the brand new Oltre Cento – to go with premium food ingredients that often cause perplexity about which wine to serve with them. The deep intensity of bottarga fish roe and anchovies, the soft richness of avocado, the complex aromas of seasoned and blue cheeses, all of which are often problematical in terms of finding partners, will discover their perfect complements through the versatility and structure of these three Marsala Florio products: virgin, semi-dry and superior, a tasting itinerary for modern palates.
Designed for people with an appetite for gastronomic experiments shared with friends, Florio offers its concept of single accompaniments, provided by products with exceptional histories and personalities: inspired by a traditionally innovative Brand.
