Marsala dry wine Duca Di Castelmonte Dry Marsala dessert and cooking wine is produced by the famous Italian wine maker Casa Pelligrino. The Duca di Castelmonte brand is for all table wines as well as for sweet and fortified wines. The range of Marsala produced by Carlo Pellegrino is pretty vast and interesting. The range begins with this delicious Marsala dry fine wine, exclusively produced with Grillo, Inzolia, Catarratto and Damaschino grapes from the Province of Trapani, Marsala and the Mazara del Vallo area. This rich and complex Marsala has a pale straw-yellow color with green hues. The bouquet is fresh and intense, and the flavor is attractively fruity and persistent. Over one year in Oak casks give it a fine and delicate taste that makes it perfect as a dessert wine, and just as good for cooking special Italian recipes, such as the delightful Veal Marsala.
The Pellegrino company was founded in Marsala in 1880. The family estate stretches for more than 300 hectares
in the prime area of western Sicily, with its rich soils, micro-climates, and vines. Today it is one of the leading Sicilian companies for the production of Grillo, Marsala and table wines under the Duca di Castelmonte label. Since its inception, the founding Pellegrino family members have been instrumental in making sure that the company follow thousands year-old wine making traditions.
