Halara Rosso

Halara Rosso


Country: Italy

Region: Sicily

Grapes: Parpato

Vintage: 2019

Halara is a collaboration between Nino Barraco and Corrado Dotori of La Distesa, who are working together to bring back abandoned indigenous vineyards in Marsala, Sicily. To start with they are working with 2 hectares of Parpato and Catarratto vines that are around 35 years old, making a rosato and rosso with minimal intervention to unique terroir of this sun, sea and windswept region come through.

The rosso is 100% Parpato from north facing vines planted over calcareous soils. It's light and ethereal with a pronounced sea spray character overlaid with sweet black fruit, roasted Mediterranean herbs and plenty of woody spice.
