  • Vineyards Coastal strip of the towns of Marsala, Petrosino and other inland areas of the province of Trapani. Terre rossa soils, low in fertility and rich in silica.
  • Winemaking Extraordinarily ripe grapes with a high sugar content are harvested by hand. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature and the resulting wine is blended with fortified must, cooked must and wine-brandy. Matured at least 7 years in oak barrels.
  • Tasting Notes Color: Brilliant amber with topaz reflections. Bouquet: Pronounced with the scent of dates, apricots and cooked plums. Taste: Rich, warm, and velvety with an intense finish of luscious dried fruits.
  • Food Pairing An excellent aperitif. Targa is also incredible with rich tasting cheeses, especially blue-veined, and it pairs perfectly with desserts. Try it with Nick Stellino's Cherry-Almond Rice Pudding.
