This is an orange wine.  It is a reference to the fact that this wine is fermented with skin contact and not a direct reference to the color.  The exact hue may vary from fairly pale to a deep amber.


Ciello Description

This wine is coming from Cantina Rallo which has been making wines since the 1860's. The Vesco family took over the cellar which was previously making only Marsala in the 90's, and have since revolutionized the winemaking and viticulture.  

Alcamo is a small town between Palermo and Trapani in western Sicily. The grapes are sourced not only from organic estate fruit, but other small organic farmers.  

The Ciello line is named after a reference to Cielo of Alcamo, one of best-known poets of the Sicilian school. When Palermo was the capital of the Sicilian kingdom for approximately 700 years, Cielo was the first poet to write in a non Latin language, which in turn started the "Scuola Siciliana" of poetry. This an entire century before Dante!  

100% Catarratto macerated on the skins for 8 days in stainless steel
