Sicilia! 11

Posted by
L'explorateur (Vancouver, Canada) on 1 April 2011 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

This is the image #11 (of 12) of the Sicilian series.

The cask in the foreground contains Marsala wine produced in 1939!
Marsala is a very strong wine. It lasts for ages, it only gets better and better with time.
I have seen bottles from 1889! 
I also had the great opportunity to smell the inside part of this cork. I simply melted away...


Questa è la foto #11 (di 12) della serie sulla Sicilia.
Il barile in primo piano contiene vino Marsala prodotto nel 1939!
Il Marsala è un vino molto forte. Più invecchia e più si arricchisce. Migliora col tempo. 

Presso le Cantine Florio, ho visto bottiglie del 1889! Ho anche avuto la grande opportunità di odorare la parte interna del tappo nella foto. Una indescrivibile ed unica ricchezza di profumi. Quasi commovente...
Taken on Feb 26, 2011, in Marsala, Italy.
Scattata il 26 Febbraio 2011, a Marsala.

I'm a heathen when it comes to wine-I don't know a good one from a bad one, but I bet you had real enjoyment on the day that you were there

Profumi, sapori, colori, atmosfera ..... ma un bicchiere, quando ce lo offri ? ;]

Scents, flavors, colors, atmosphere ..... but a glass when we came up with it? ;]

I love the color and composition of your image. The warm tone of the picture seems to match the mellowed with age wine of your caption.
