Wine importer Alivini, formed in 1975 to supply wines and foods from all regions of Italy, is the UK supplier of Rallo's Grillo 2006 vintage wine and Rallo's Extra Virgin Oil from Cantine Rallo in Alcamo, Sicily.
The vineyards benefit from the presence of vegetation with insects that kill grape parasites, reducing the need for pesticides and fungicides, and the crops are manually harvested.
Rollo's Grillo Bianca di Sicilia is a full-bodied but delicate wine with a rose petal aroma that has been described as the future Pinot Grigio and is sold in cases of 12 x 75cl bottles.
The olive oil, available in packs of 6 x 500ml bottles, is cold-pressed by hammer from the Cerasuola olive (a full-bodied, light green variety) that produces a full-balanced, gently spicy oil that teams well with bread, meat, legume soup, and raw vegetables.
