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
Cantine Rallo have vineyards in three main sites: Alcamo
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
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.
