La Botticella da Riserva is a sweet return to the past, to the pleasure of drinking wine by pouring it directly from the barrel with all the taste of having known how to wait without hurry for the best time to drink it and to discover it every time different: because Marsala is matter alive that matures, ages and grows rich over the years. The saying of the Winemaker Florio Martinez: "A good Marsala does not make man but time" is the guiding concept in the production of Marsala in Cantina Martinez, and accompanies each Botticella da Riserva right into your home where it still requires you to complete the its aging. In fact, the Marsala Superiore Dolce Riserva with which it has been filled, will offer you all the best of itself after at least 10 months of rest, during which it will continue to evolve and rebalance itself enriched by the new oak with which it came into contact from the moment of partial filling of the barrel. This type of Marsala is the daughter of Grillo, Catarratto and Inzolia grapes grown in the province of Trapani as prescribed by the production disciplinary. During the Tanning, which is the phase in the production process in which the type of Marsala to be obtained is defined, the wine is added alcohol, Mistella and cooked must which gives it an intense amber color. The aging process then begins in oak barrels in which the wine is in contact with the air for at least 5 years during which it develops its characteristic oxidative bouquet. It will finally be poured into small barrels where it will complete its maturation in your home.
