"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." -Robert Parker
"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."
