2020 FRAPPATO, Valle Dell’Acate. Sicily, Italy

Bin:  429

Alcohol percentage:  13.0%



Valle dell’Acate are located in south east Sicily, in the province of Ragusa. Despite being a warm region, like all of Sicily, it’s renowned for producing wines of brightness and freshness. The best known is Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Sicily’s only ‘DOCG’ – which is a blend of Nero D’Avola and Frappato. Producers also make single variety wines, like this one.


Family owned for six generations and since 2000 run by Gaetana Jacono who has been responsible for the winery’s renown. She has re-planted almost all of the estate’s 100 hectares. She is also the brand ambassador for the wines of Cerasuolo di Vittoria and led the producer group when I visited the area on a Master of Wine trip a few years ago.

Food match:

Frappato is rather like Gamay – bright, fresh and Gamay, but with a clearly Italian twist, a spicy, black cherry edge.
