  • 20% off Italy


The wine light in colour with suppressed aromas of citrus, green apple and white flowers. Crisp, fresh and citrussy to the fore, delightful elements of almond and stone fruit come through on the clean, minerally finish. The vineyards here are perfectly located at Italy’s southern-most point to get the best out of this native Sicilian grape, thriving in the high heat of day but relieved by the cool ocean breezes at night. Grapes are picked at night and cool-fermented to attain the best varietal expression.

This is your perfect partner to calamari with a twist of lemon.

Producer: Vini Rudini

The story of Rudini begins with its founder, Saro di Pietro, inheriting his passion for wine from his father. In 1969 Saro became a must seller and as a 'taster’, flanked by an accountant, he would evaluate the wines brought by their winemakers to the central square of Pachino. He became responsible for sorting wines for export to Genoa and then between Piedmont and France and buying the Rudini property in 1972 paved the way for him to create his own winery. By focusing vineyard plantings and wine selection on Nero d’Avola, Saro contributed to the revival and resurgence of the native grape in this key part of Sicily. The vineyards, amongst the most southerly in Italy, are located around Pachino in the south-east corner of Sicily, just 15 miles from the city of Avola that gave its name to the island's most important grape. Today, Saro’s son, Giuseppe and his wife Stefania continue the family business, having recently fully modernised the winery and vineyard management.
