Rallo Azienda Agricola, Soleras 20yr Old Marsala, DOP Sicily, Italy

Producer Profile

The Vesco family make fragrant wines, organically grown in a certified organic agriculture.

They represent the best and most typical style of winemaking in western Sicily: crisp Catarratto and perfumed, fresh Nero d'Avola from their hillside vineyards. Cantine Rallo have vineyards in three sites in western Sicily: Alcamo for Catarratto and Nero d'Avola; Marsala for Grillo and Pantelleria for the Zibbibo that makes their delicious Passito di Pantelleria. Their grapes tend to be picked earlier in the year than many of their neighbours which produces their customary bright, fresh style of wine.

Oak Ageing

Tasting Note

A full dry, yet smooth and rich wine which has been aged for over 20 years in small oak casks via a Solera system. A perfect wine to serve at the end of a meal with its heady nutty flavours, caramel notes and mouth watering backbone of acidity. Pair with ripe creamy cheeses for a full on taste sensation.
