Despite any prior notions you may have about Marsala, its significance spans much farther than a cooking wine. Cantine Florio ‘Targa’ Semisecco and Cantine Florio Oltre Cento are  two different expressions of this fortified rule-breaking wine by Cantine Florio, one of oldest wineries of the region that has been producing high-quality Marsala DOC. ‘Targa’ Semisecco pairs perfectly with bruschetta with gorgonzola cheese and honey, while Oltre Cento pairs perfectly with peach cobbler and strawberry shortcake. If you’re searching for something interesting and exquisitely versatile, Florio Marsala is definitely a great place to start. | Facebook | Instagram
