  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • Emark, you sat through Beethoven's Fifth twice?  I could research, maybe find an answer and pretend I knew all along but ever since being dragged to everyone one of my oldest sister's Saturday performances with the SF Youth Orchestra on beautiful days when I could have been out playing ball, I've been allergic to symphonic music.  Not bitter at ...

  • Valle Dell'Acate Frappato Sicilia IGT 2010


    Love this wine: light and bright with a cut of raspberry minerality and a hint of effervescence (?)-- the fruit is not unlike a Beaujolais and beautifully done! Read More

  • Valle Dell'Acate Frappato Sicilia IGT 2005


    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. Its a rather lean wine, but refreshing with a simple clarity. 85pts Read More

  • Valle Dell'Acate Cerasuolo di Vittorio Classico 2008


    Orange oil and green anise seed dominate the nose, which has very laid back slightly candied black raspberry fruit. Very tense in the mouth with fine balance and super integration. Theres a slightly tarry edge to the core of bitter black cherry fruit and a decent finish with nice cherry skin tannins, but this is not revealing all it has. The bri... Read More

  • Valle Dell' Acate Frappato Rosso 2007


    Rather assertive on the nose with dark cherry fruit topped with fine floral and herbal top notes. This smells decidedly ripe. Youthful and maybe a bit closed on the palate with a slightly dense feel, though this remains lively and elegant. Theres a really fine blend of fruit and flowers here with a long, complex layered finish. This is quite the... Read More

  • Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG Classico Nero d'Avola/frappato Valle Dell'Acate Rotwein Sizilien Valle Dell'Acate 2006


    Fruity and floral on the nose with youthful strawberry fruit accented with orange oil. Gentle and juicy on entry with light black fruit tones that pass over the palate with elegance and energy. The finish is a little low key, but this is just so pure and fresh with fine cherry pit and mineral flavors that a little lack of flesh here and there is... Read More
