RED SOIL: the soil structure is divided between clear red sand and dark, medium density earth with good depth. The grapevines planted in dark red soil produce Nero d’Avola, while the vines planted in clear red soil produce Frappato. The Nero d’Avola and Frappato grapes are blended together to obtain the famous Cerasuolo di Vittoria (70% Nero d’Avola and 30% Frappato). This red wine is Valle dell’Acate crown jewel and has earned Italy’s vaunted DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) status.
