Cantine Rallo was founded in Marsala, on the westernmost promontory of Sicily, and is a successful integration between nature, technology and tradition. Don Diego Rallo founded the firm in 1860, and the Vesco family took over operations in 1996. Today Cantine Rallo has about 50 hectares of vineyards, all of which are in the DOC zone of Alcamo. The majority of wines are produced with grapes from the estate's own vineyards. The firm has about 10 thousand hectolitres of steel tanks for storage, half of which are temperature controlled. The wine bottling area, with a capacity of 4,000 bottles per hour, is one of the most modern production lines in the region. The ageing cellar has capacity for about 13,000 hectolitres of oak casks and barriques. Cantine Rallo produces high quality wines at a very reasonable price. The whites are fragrant and fruity, while the reds are concentrated and rich.
The Evrò name pays homage to the Queen Bianca of Navarra (The White Queen) who was the queen consort of the King of Sicily during the reign of William I (1154-1166) and regent during the minority of her son William II. Her history is intertwined with the castle of Alcamo portrayed on the label. The blue colour of the label is meant to evoke not only the freshness of the wine, but also the “blue blood” of the queen. The platinum capsule surrounds the head of the bottle like a precious crown. Produced from 100% Insolia grapes that are organically grown in their estate vineyards around the territory of Alcamo. The wine is matured in temperature controlled stainless steel vessels in order to maintain freshness and acidity. A straw yellow colour in the glass, expect a dry white wine that displays a bouquet of apricot, pear, apple and citrus fruit with hints of beeswax and white flowers. Rich and full in the mouth with great texture and a salted honey finish.
The Clarissa Syrah has an intensely fruity nose with black cherry, blackberries, hints of bacon with a touch of leather. A little more than medium bodied, rich and round with plenty of fruit on the palate that contributes nicely delineated structural tannins. Compares with a Rhone-Valley Syrah.
