VALLE DELL’ACATE PRESENTS BELLIFOLLI:
LIGHT AND JOYOUS WINES TO CONQUER THE NEW GENERATION

 

Milan, March 7th, 2018 – its name is Bellifolli and it is the new project of the Sicilian cellar Valle dell’Acate, a winery present for six generations in the world of the island’s wine. The project will be illustrated today in an advance presentation at the Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan. A brilliant line of wines created after reflecting on the success of Frappato both in Italy and on International markets; a wine which is fresh and light. A red wine which also goes well with fish and is a fine match to many international dishes. And is much liked by the younger generation. Bellifolli synthesizes the character and the contrasts of Sicily and the Sicilians: the beauty and the moments of folly, the light and the shade, the sea in turmoil and the warm sirocco breeze – all of this which, together, has created an identity which can be seen in one of the marvels of the island, its spectacular Baroque architecture.
“As a child I walked through the streets of our cities protected by the “mascheroni”, the fantastic or grotesque faces which jut out from the facades of the palaces. We Sicilians have lived with them for centuries, they are part of our daily life. They narrate, murmur, observe – comments Gaetana Jacono, proprietor of Valle Dell’Acate –and adds that Interbrand, the principal brand consultancy firm on a global level, has known how to interpret our concept with much intelligence, giving it an up to date style and approach. Here are four wines – Syrah, Nero d’Avola, Insolia, Grillo & Chardonnay – which are marvelously Sicilian and have obtained the effect we hoped for on the younger generations, that of appreciation and total surprise”.

This year put a little extra magic in your Christmas with Il Moro Limited Edition 2008
from Valle dell’Acate
A pure, deep garnet red Nero d’Avola, Il Moro Limited Edition is intense, rich and enveloping:
the perfect holiday gift for Christmas 2015

Ragusa, November 2015. Valle dell’Acate, the Sicilian wine company run by Gaetana Jacono and Francesco Ferreri, the sixth generation of family winemakers, has decided to pay homage to its Il Moro Limited Edition 2008 wine, offering it in a Christmas gift package for the 2015 holiday season: the perfect gift for anyone who loves elegant, silky wines with intense aromas. A deep garnet red, the wine is characterized by notes of mature prune and caramelized cherries, with a hint of spices, vanilla and chocolate. The flavor is full-bodied, silky, warm and elegant. Il Moro Limited Edition was born of Valle dell’Acate’s ongoing desire to experiment and push the boundaries of its own wine production. The 2008 harvest was particularly select and concentrated, inspiring the winemakers to leave the grapes on the vine following their physiological maturation in order to let them wither and dehydrate slightly.
