Cantine Pellegrino was established in 1880 by Paolo Pellegrino in Marsala on the island of Sicily. The company, still family-owned, is the largest in the region today, with nearly 1,000 acres of vineyards. The grapes used for all the Pellegrino wines are indigenous (or brought by the earliest settlers) and are rarely seen in other regions. The low rainfall, hot temperatures, and dry winds mean that few chemical treatments are needed.
Amber in color with toffee, nutty aromas. On the palate this wine is rich in texture and has sweet dry fruit flavors. It is best enjoyed slightly chilled with tarts, flans, creamy pastries and shortcake biscuits.
