Marsala (Sicily) Marsala Superiore Riserva Donna Franca shows an intense amber yellow color and nuances of amber yellow, transparent. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas that start with hints of dried apricot, dried fig, date and almond followed by aromas of caramel, vanilla, candied fruit, raisin, rhubarb, nail polish, citrus fruits peel, honey and licorice. The mouth has excellent correspondence to the nose, an alcoholic and sweet attack, however balanced, full body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of dried apricot, dried fig, honey and almond. A well made wine.
