Cantine Rallo, Evro, 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.
This wine is made from Insolia grapes grown high in the hills. Bright and fresh it is ideal as an aperitif, with young cheeses (amazing with spanking fresh Ricotta) and fish. Drink young but will keep for a couple of years.
