Tasting Notes

Catarratto is one of Sicily's indigenous varieties and one we almost never see on these shores. The brilliant Rallo is one producer championing this variety and really demonstrating what can be achieved when yields are restricted and it receives the attention it deserves. A wine with precise, linear acidity and a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this is all about fresh citrus flavours, a touch of white flowers and bracing, mouth-watering acidity. The saline minerality and layers of flavour are testament to the quality of the grapes and the winemaking but it is Catarratto's natural citrusy charm which is the standout here. This is crying out for seafood, ideally by the sea!

Reviews & Scores

Beleda 2013 is a selection of the best Catarratto grapes cultivated in the plots of Patti Piccolo. The grapes, organically grown in a certified BIOSUISSE organic agriculture, produce a well-balanced and mineral
wine with significantly fruity and balsamic notes.

For the second consecutive year, Rallo gets, always on a white wine, the highest honor awarded by one of the most authoritative Italian
guides, rightfully entering among the companies that represent the excellence of Italian wine in the world.

A late vintage with a long period of ripening, 2014 presented us with wines that generate a great amount of pleasure. Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2014 has a ruby color of medium intensity. On the nose it develops fresh crisp fruit aromas underpinned by fine notes of spice. The palate is of medium weight with notes of red berry fruit....

TASTING NOTES

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.
