Cantine Rallo, AV01 Catarratto Orange, Sicily, Italy
Cantine Rallo is a long established producer based in Marsala, Western Sicily. Whilst their origins lie in producing the unique Marsala wine and they still make outstanding traditional dry Marsala, their business now is mainly in table wines. The Vesco family owned vineyards in the hills above Alcamo, a prime area for producing grapes for table wines thanks to the cooler conditions but had no winery. Rallo had a winery but only vineyards near the coast growing grapes for Marsala, a shrinking market. Put the two together and result. One of Sicily’s leading producers.
Made with Catarratto, the great Sicilian white grape, grown in the hills and picked early in the morning to make sure it arrives at the winery cool to protect the subtle aromas. Fermented on skins in acacia barrels then transferred to steel for six months and bottled unfined, unfiltered and with zero added sulphur. Nothing added and none of the goodness taken away!Producer - Cantine Rallo
