About the producer: Cantine Rallo have been involved in the production of wine since 1860, with the founder of the cellars originally producing Marsala wine. The Vesco family took over the business in the late 1990s and have since revolutionised the viticultural practices and invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line.
Baglio Antico is a nod to the architectural heritage of rural Sicily. Historically farmers positioned by the sea had access to trade routes, they were also vulnerable to incoming attacks from the sea. In order to protect their produce from marauders, the traders sheltered in fortified buildings or baglios. At Cantine Rallo the aim is to innovate but still to uphold and respect local tradition and heritage.
