75cl/17% ABV Sicily, Italy
A style of fortified wine, commonly used for cooking for but just as delicious sipped as an aperitif. Made from a selection of Sicilian native grapes, the term ‘fine’ indicates minimum ageing, usually a year or less. This is traditionally served as an aperitif between the starter and main courses of a meal.
Light amber colour. Maderised nutty, toffee flavours. Quite dry and fresh on entry with a spicy warm finish. Definitely best suited to cooking but you could chill it down and serve it with toasted almonds, Sherry-like, by the fireplace.
