Valle Dell'Acate Frappato Sicilia IGT 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Spicy on the nose with a nice array of nettles, flowers, dusty soil tones and fresh fruit. Bright and juicy in the mouth with excellent focus to the pure transparent mid-palate the reveals ripe fruit and tannins that are well-balanced. The black cherry and blueberry flavors seeps out on to the moderately long finish. Combines some power with ripeness, yet retains its elegance. 89pts

Sweetly raspberry-toned on the nose with a bit of a woodsy overlay. Good acids in the mouth give this a bright feel and help to highlight the wild strawberry fruit. It’s a rather lean wine, but refreshing with a simple clarity. 85pts

A dry red from a very Sicilian variety: Frappato. Pretty from the start, this scrumptious wine is ruby red in color, with firm raspberry fruit and lively acidity. It's the perfect easy-drinking wine to enjoy with tomato-based dishes.
