The fortified wine Vecchio Samperi Quarantennale has a rich and penetrating taste, a result achieved thanks to the consolidated experience of the producers Marco De Bartoli. The processing of Grillo grapes, grown in the countryside of Marsala (TP), Sicily, enhances with particular care the scents given by the terroir of origin. The addition of alcohol gives character to the wine, for an aromatic sip to taste in the company of red meats and aged cheeses.

The Marco De Bartoli winery has always been a symbol of ancient and virtuous traditions handed down to this day with prestige and high quality. An example of this is the forty-year limited edition of a historic Sicilian liqueur wine: Il Vecchio Samperi. The perpetual method, also called Solera, used during fermentation, was restored in 1978 to give life to the famous local wine, the "stravecchio". The procedure consists in adding wine from overripe Grillo grapes to wine aged in cask: the goal is to obtain a wine with an important alcoholic component.
An edition that recounts the strong imprint of the warm lands of Marsala, a reserve that has naturally reached 18 degrees of alcohol, maintaining its unmistakable fragrance and oxidative style, characteristics that are common to every edition of the fortified wine Vecchio Samperi.
The Vecchio Samperi Quarantennale di casa Marco De Bartoli presents an amber-coloured face with a lively luminosity. The nose is complex, very structured, with hints of oriental spices, dried fruit and hints of honey. In the mouth it is characterized by a long, dry persistence, ideal to accompany braised meats, mature cheeses and roe. On the label of the bottle there is a work by Prof. Carlo Lauricella dating back to 1983.
