On the west side of Sicily close to Marsala,
is where Rallo Azienda Agricola calls home. Working organically,
the Vesco family focus on creating fragrant crisp Catarratto and
perfumed fresh Nero d'Avola from their hillside vineyards.
These vineyards are certified organic and are nestled high up in
the hills south of Alcamo to take advantage of the slightly cooler
temperatures and greater diurnal differences. The vines look down
on the town of Marsala where, when the grapes have been harvested,
they are taken. Here Andrea Vesco treats them with respect,
utilising modern technology to ensure the freshness is retained for
the final wines and creating elegant examples of the varieties that
are anything but what you would expect from such a hot land.
