Colombo Marsala Dry wine

With a mission of uncovering one bottle at a time, Today I am reviewing Colombo Marsala Dry wine. It is fortified wine which means cognac has been added during the maturation. This makes it higher in ABV of 18% and I love it. Enjoy some background about this wine, tasting notes and food pairings in this blog. 
Reads the product label "Colombo Marsala is unique, versatile wine made only on the island of Sicily on the Italian Coast. For centuries, Marsala has been enjoyed as an aperitif before a meal or during desert. More recently top Chefs use Colombo Marsala for their finest recipes when absolutely top-quality ingredients are required". Well I am no top chef but I will test out if this statement is true or not by using it for cooking Marsala Chicken and of course reviewing the wine. Enjoy!
