There are three historic markets in Palermo and they are much more than just open spaces where you can make a purchase. The main market is at the top of the old Arab quarter of the "schiavoni". Today, as in the past, this is one of the most populous areas of the historic center.
The Vucciria market - whose name comes from the French "Boucherie" (butcher) - seems to have already existed as early as the tenth century. Subsequently, the slaughterhouse was moved and Vucciria expanded into the nearby streets. Finally Ballarò, whose name comes from Bahlara, a village in the hills surrounding Palermo from where the merchants who attended the market came. The market is the oldest, and perhaps due to this reason, you can find the greatest diversity of people of different races. Typical of markets is the so-called "abbanniata", or, the way in which the merchants would scream in order to best sell their wares. Every market is the epitome of the micro world of which we spoke that raises your intrigue and possesses that certain something by which you will be enchanted.

A ... come Ammasso! E' il fiore all'occhiello di Barone Montalto. Il termine Ammasso sta ad indicare una ancestrale tecnica di ammostamento che ancora oggi viene praticata sulle migliori partite di uva della Sicilia. Il vino ottenuto da parziale appassimento sulla pianta risulta opulento, potente, ma finemente equilibrato. Le note candite si avvolgono a quelle tostate regalando al palato pienezza e sensualità. --- A ... for Ammasso! It is the flagship of Barone Montalto. Ammasso means a traditional winemaking technique that still today is used to vinify the best parcels in Sicily. Ammasso is opulent but gently balanced. Candied notes and toasted hints ensure a flavorful and sensual palate. #glossariomontalto #experiencesicily #baronemontalto #winelovers #winepassion
