Description

Valle dell'Acate is one of the most well-known and active vineyards in southeastern Sicily. The company is run by Gaetana Jacono, part of the family's sixth generation of winemakers. The company is committed to local territory, to bringing its traditional winemaking culture and products to the outside world, and to the use of eco-sustainable winemaking techniques. The vineyards extend over 100 hectares, most of which have been replanted from 2001 to the present day with prized local and international vines. By cultivating the most highly-prized autochthonous vines, utilizing technologically advanced systems and taking advantage of winemaking skills that have been handed down generation after generation across two centuries, today Valle dell'Acate can offer its clients a series of wines of undeniable value: radiant, dynamic and aromatic. These include its famous D.O.C.G Cerasuolo di Vittoria, D.O.C wines like Il Frappato, Bidis-Chardonnay, Zagra-Grillo, plus I.G.Ts like Il Moro-Nero d'Avola, Rusciano-Syrah and Tan
