Rallo Azienda Agricola, 'Il Manto', Nero d'Avola, Sicily, Italy


This is soothing and satisfying Nero D'Avola. It has much more character and texture than the cheaper wines which generally make up the now fast-growing Nero D'Avola market. Intense ruby in colour, it has beautifully red fruit and toasty vanill aroma with a touch of black pepper and spice. Mellow, balanced, and robust. It's an excellent wine and is perfect with beef stews or even a rich lamb curry!

On the west side of Sicily close to Marsala, is where Rallo Azienda Agricola calls home. Working organically, the Vesco family focus on creating fragrant crisp Catarratto and perfumed fresh Nero d'Avola from their hillside vineyards. These vineyards are certified organic and are nestled high up in the hills south of Alcamo to take advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures and greater diurnal differences.
