Marsala with Rugs and Fabrics
Marsala is the name of the wine made near the town of Marsala in western Sicily. It has many distinguishing and enduring characteristics.
It's fortified. Distilled spirits, usually grape brandy, are added to the finished product. At first this practice assured that the wine could withstand long sea voyages without going bad. Now it's because people enjoy the taste and warmth of the extra alcohol content (in the neighborhood of 15-20 percent).
Similarly, PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala, color of the year, evokes a lot of responses.
