Florio Dry Marsala Yellow or White label

I Have made Chicken Marsala a few times in the past using the yellow label bottles. I ordered some for delivery and received the white label bottles. Now I don't know of any difference but a commenter on the site i ordered from stated the following.



"The vintage with the yellow label and gold & red family crest is excellent. The vintage with the white label tastes just ok, watered down in comparison."



You can see the label differences here

I assume I wont note any difference using it for making Marsala. I am not planning on drinking it.


Any thoughts?

Welcome to DC.

I have no opinion/ nor knowledge about marsala or any other wine. I'd find out why they substituted the white label instead of the yellow as ordered.

Maybe they will send a replacement bottle, hint-hint.

I buy the white label. As long as you buy marsala and not sweet for chicken/veal marsala.

I left them a comment in their follow up email survey. I got a call five minutes later and was told it was the same item simply different label. They stated all their stock was white label.
