Cantine Rallo, Sicily

The historic Cantine Rallo winery is based a stones throw from the beach in Marsala.

The dynamic Vesco family took over the winery 10 years ago and have since revolutionised the viticultural practices and invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line. Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo.

 

The wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 - 300m above sea level. The climate is clearly suited for producing the best quality grapes.

Cantine Rallo have vineyards in three main sites:  Alcamo for CatarrattoPage Details and Nero d'Avola; Marsala for Grillo and Pantelleria for the Zibbibo which that produces their delightful Passito di Pantelleria.

The grapes tend to be picked earlier in the year than many of their neighbours which produces their customary bright, fresh style of wine.

The results are evident in the fragrant, crisp Catarratto and perfumed, fresh Nero D'Avola. These wines are a million miles from the overripe styles made by many of their peers.
