ABOUT THE WINE


The Rallo winery is a family-owned winery located in the western part of Sicily, Italy, in the province of Trapani. The winery was founded in 1860 by Diego Rallo, and is currently run by the fourth generation of the family. Rallo winery focuses on producing wines that reflect the unique terroir of Sicily, with a particular emphasis on native grape varieties such as Grillo, Catarratto, and Nero d'Avola. The winery practices sustainable viticulture, with a focus on reducing their environmental impact and preserving the biodiversity of their vineyards.
As the rubies embellish the cloak of the Norman sovereign Ruggero II, so the grapes of Nero d’Avola decorate the vineyards. The name of the wine reveals the tribute to the cloak of Ruggero II King of Sicily, this garment was erroneously known as Coronation cloak, it was made in tiraz (the weaving factory) of the Royal Palace of Palermo in 1134. This is an handiwork of rare magnificence, semicircular and with over three meters in aperture diameter. The decoration consists of precious stones like rubies; immediate is the comparison between rubies and the berries of Nero d’Avola grapes and between vineyards and the cloak itself. The symbols in the labels recall the fabulous embroidery of the cloak of Ruggero.
