This dry, medium bodied wine is unfiltered so can be quite cloudy, I like to shake it first, much to the horror of unsuspecting customers, I’ve even been told off for doing so, but hey, life is a trip so let’s go for it! A great value Natural white for everyday drinking, pair with shellfish, vegetarian dishes and appetizers / snacks. Listen to something new whilst drinking this one, or maybe try ‘The Vision’ available on my members playlists.

Think vibrant oranges, apple, peach, pear and apricot, tropical freshness with a slant of minerality and olive oil. Honey in colour, masquerades as a Viognier at times! Overall a very fresh, funky and vibrant wine. A super wine at this price.

More information

The dynamic Vesco family took over the winery 10 years ago and have since revolutionised the viticultural practices and invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line, and since 2010 Rallo wines are “produced and bottled at their origin by the grower”. Fine wines, organically grown in a certified organic agriculture, they represent the best and most typical of the cultivar of Western Sicily. Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo. The wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 – 300m above sea level. The climate is clearly suited for producing the best quality grapes. The results of their excellent work are evident in the fragrant crisp Catarratto that they produce at outstanding value. The wine is a million miles from the overripe styles made by many of their peers. Night harvesting and modern temperature controlled fermentations result in a bright, fresh Catarratto with a pleasant trace of pink grapefruit, apple-skin with soft almond on the finish. The wine is unfiltered and has an encouragingly hazy appearance, excellent natural wine at a great price.
