Valle dell'Acate Il Frappato 2015
Wine AdvocateThis is a wine I enjoy regularly at home because it delivers consistent, easy-drinking satisfaction at a good value price. The 2015 Vittoria Frappato Il Frappato is an elegant and streamlined wine that offers a pretty bouquet of wild berry, cranberry, herb and blue flowers. The Frappato grape is very influenced by the soils it is planted on. Valle dell'Acate has taken care to dedicate its vineyard plots with thin, sandy soils where the roots can extend far underground to this delicate variety. The grape delivers a good dose of natural acidity and you will notice that sourness on the finish.
Wine EnthusiastBright and savory, this opens with enticing aromas of wild berry, fragrant blue flower, rose and a whiff of exotic spice. The silky, easy-drinking palate offers succulent Marasca cherry, black raspberry, white pepper and a hint of clove alongside lithe tannins and fresh acidity.
