Valle dell’Acate Il Frappato 2014:

I found this to be a fragrant, light-bodied and somewhat earthy red. It showcases aromas of dark cherry, rose and pomegranate. The palate delivers a tart yet juicy blend of cranberry’s, strawberry, and a whiff of white pepper…

One wine that I’ve always enjoyed is the Valle dell’Acate Il Frappato Vittoria. I had a bottle of the 2014 that I had not tasted yet, so I thought I would open it. I love Frappato, an indigenous Sicilian grape.

4 pages of story of Valle dell’Acate with Gaetana Jacono.

[…] Transformative and unique –that’s what I thought when I met Gaetana Jacono to learn about her 100-hectare estate, Valle Dell’Acate, in Sicily. I lunched with her recently to taste three of her wines: Insolia (a white, made from the Insolia grape), Il Frappato (a red, 100 percent from the Frappato grape) and Cerasuolo di Vittoria (a blend of Frappato and the better-known, dark red Nero d’Avola)…
