This is it. This is the affordable, smashable, entry level orange wine you’ve been looking for. This is the wine that’s going to set you apart from the cuveè shop piss your friends so often force on you. We know it’ll never reach the heady heights of macerated stardom such as Gravner or Radikon, but you know what, that’s ok! You just want to crush a bottle at a friends place. And this is that bottle. Tasting notes: orange……no but in all seriousness this is a lovely little savoury number, with an enticing peppiness on the nose, ginger root, herbs and bruised fruit on the palate.


Cantine Rallo has a mere one hundred hectares under vine. To put that into context that’s around hundred football fields. impressively they still manage to cultivate fruit organically which is then able to spontaneously ferment, an integral part any natural wine production. All set back on south east facing hillside terraces not far from Alcamo, North West Sicily. The Vesco family clearly know what they are doing when it comes to giving the people what they want. Inexpensive and delightful orange wine being one of them.
