Armit Wines

Bursting with succulent and ripe red fruits, blackcurrant and blackberry flavours on the palate with soft grainy tannins. Lots of juicy, sweet, mouthwatering red and black fruit flavours and lingering blackcurrant notes. Extremely drinkable.

Producer

Rallo’s history dates back to 1860, when Don Diego Rallo established the estate to produce both table wine and Marsala. Marsala suffered a general decline in popularity during the 1950s and 1960s and Rallo were instrumental in reviving the quality and popularity of Marsala throughout the island, their efforts were rewarded and in 1969 Marsala achieved DOC status.

After over a century of traditional winemaking, it was bought during the 1990s by the Vesco family, who already owned a winery in DOP Alcamo, and the two estates were combined. Following an ambitious investment project, Rallo evolved into a modern winery and expanded to include three separate estates: Piane Liquide on the Western coast in Marsala, Bugeber on the island of Pantelleria and the Patti Picolo Estate situated inland in Alcamo. Today, Rallo is the only winery in Sicily to be certified organic and their outstanding wines represent the most classic cultivars of Western Sicily.

Region

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a rich vinous history dating back over 2500 years. Its classic Mediterranean climate and soil has resulted in an area not only ideal for winemaking but also olives and citrus fruit which are key exports. Mount Etna dominates the landscape providing mineral-rich dark soil and vineyards are being planted higher up the slope. Historically more famous for the production of Marsala, serious transformation is taking place. Sicily is now becoming better known for top quality wines from a range of varietals including Grillo, Cataratto and Nero d’Avola alongside international varieties.
