This bright Frappato has attractive aromas of red-skinned berry, rose petal and Mediterranean scrub. The juicy palate offers Marasca cherry, clove and white pepper alongside polished tannins and fresh acidity.

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
A certified organic wine of which some 80,000 bottles were made, the Valle dell'Acate 2020 Sicilia Vittoria Il Frappato is both informal and elegant. The Frappato grape is a true star in the wide constellation of Sicilian grapes and should not be overlooked, especially if you love tonic, lean and silky wines that are generally Pinot Noir-adjacent. Valle dell'Acate makes one of the very best expressions, and this vintage is the standout. True to form, it shows wild berry, sour cherry and earth. There is some caper or green olive as well, and although the alcohol content registers a mild 13%, you feel the pinch of that Sicilian sunshine nonetheless.

Region: Sicily

There are few wine regions in the world with such an ideal terroir and climate for viticulture as that found on Sicily. This Italian island has been an important center for wine production for several thousand years, with experts claiming that the ancient Greeks were the first to bring wine-making techniques to the island. The almost year-round sunshine and rich, fertile volcanic soil of Sicily makes the vintner's jobs very easy, and grapevines thrive and flourish more or less everywhere on the island. Sicily is widely renowned for its excellent sweet dessert wines, and for fortified wines such as Marsala, yet the popularity of their dry red and white produce is ever rising, thanks to their drinkability and fantastic fruit flavors which really manage to put across the sunny, almost tropical nature of the island they are grown on.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
