Vito Lauria is a Sicilian local. After studying winemaking in Friuli he expanded his experience working with some outstanding local wineries. Returning to Sicily in 2005 he worked as the oenologist for a local organic winery, spending his spare time renovating the family winery at Alcamo in the northwest. All wines are the product of organic vineyards carefully and expertly overseen by Vito. The focus is on Sicily’s noble local varieties, picked and vinified to retain balanced fruit, varietal character and sense of place without over ripe, baked concentration that sometimes represents the island. By calling on a friend who is a talented artist Vito has also ensured that his packaging is some of the most tastefully stylish that we have come across.
Vino Lauria Marsala Vergine NV
Truly a non-guilty pleasure, the Vergine is the purest form of the Sicilian Marsala tradition which stretches back to 1770. Produced from the local Grillo grape variety, this fortified, organic wine offers roasted hazelnuts and burnt caramel flavours with a dry, salty, citrussy tang.
This wine has its roots in the Lauria family history with the barrel first being filled in1978 by Vito’s father. This same barrel is drawn from and then topped up with the new vintage giving a taste of history in every bottle. Vito first sold the wine unfortified as Perpetuo – a Sicilian tradition of the perpetual barrel akin to a sherry solera. That wine, now fortified to allow it carry the Marsala denomination is at the heart of this truly special salty, sweet and joyous wine. Amazing with cheeses and even strong soups this must be tasted to be believed.
Sadly the barrel from which the Vergine originates is no longer viable so these are the last bottles of Vito’s Marsala
