Travelling to France, Italy or Napa Valley to sample the world’s most renowned grands crus is certainly a highlight in any wine enthusiast’s life. But what if travel isn’t an option? John Kerr and Gina Trippi, owners of Metro Wines in Asheville, North Carolina, have the solution: Skype. Metro Wines, a small wine shop with a surprisingly wide selection, offers creative promotions like “Side by Side Sunday” (wines made from the same grape but grown in different counties), and the Blind Tasting League – a fun interactive experience in which participants are led through a deductive process to determine what’s in the glass.

John and Gina set up virtual “tours” where visitors sample a certain wine in the store, while talking to the vintner over Skype […]

The 2014 Frappato Vittoria opens up with an irresistible fresh red fruit cocktail quality on the nose, followed by very spicy and floral notes, with juicy red berry and cherry. Finishes long and clean with a bright floral echo. A stellar Frappato that makes it impossible to put the glass down.

The best wine of this wine is from Sicily, a great Nero d’Avola made from late harvested grapes and aged for seven years.
Valle dell’Acate is one of the historical wineries of Sicily and the province of Ragusa. A winery involved since its beginning to the production of wines from indigenous grapes – Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Inzolia and Grillo – it is one of the protagonists of Cerasuolo di Vittoria and Frappato di Vittoria. In 2008 they decided to make a dream from what it promised to be an exceptional vintage: this is how Il Moro Limited Edition 2008 was born, a great wine which makes us believe about a great future for Nero d’Avola made by Valle dell’Acate.
