CANTINE RALLO

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...

TASTING NOTES

A unique wine from pre-phylloxera, 100 year old Nerello Mascalese, whose yields are minute and produce less than half a bottle of wine per vine. The result is an extraordinary achievement. Powerful, concentrated morello cherry combines with violet, raspberry coulis and impressive herbal and spicy scents. There are full, mouthcoating tannins and incredible, wild florals alongside a crunchy acidity. The...

This Archineri Etna Rosso is a wine of absolutely stunning precision and character. It is very reflective of its volcanic territory; with a fine, smoky intensity.

2017 Rosato, Pietradolce

Bottle 75cl £16.58

TASTING NOTES

Just 5000 bottles were produced of this wonderful new Cru.

The wine is a marvellous contrast to Pietradolce’s fine red Crus, as they aim to extract the character of Etna’s contrada. The wine...

TASTING NOTES

A brand new Cru, of just 1800 bottles,, we have just a handful of cases available. This wine is a labour of love, made from carefully selected 100 year old vines and vinified in French oak vats, allowing for a long skin maceration which has helped to develop an intense texture, which still crackles with minerals and spice. Lemon peel,...

TASTING NOTES

This stunning Nerello Mascalese is alive with energy, embodying orange peel freshness and bright ripe cherry and cranberry fruit. Beautifully nuanced with a richly velveteen texture, the delicate undercurrent of tarry minerals and wild herbal ungrowth provide a fascinating appeal that leads through to the final flourishes on its long finish. A triumphant wine. Armit Wines

A very complex wine with refreshing forest fruit and exotic spice notes on the nose. Succulent, wild cherry and juicy strawberry fruit flavours are balanced by a fine mineral quality and delicate tannins. Drink this magnificent wine from release and over the next few years.
