Valle dell'Acate Il Frappato 2017
Ranked the #12 Red Wine in our February 9, 2019 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
Color: Very clear ruby red. Aroma: Fragrant, fresh and overpowering; hints of red fruits, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, violet flowers and sage. Flavor: Very vivacious and fresh, particularly aromatic because of red fruit and rosebuds, a dry pleasant and persistent closing. Food Pairing: Appetizers including fresh and aged cheeses, salamis, Sicilian red tuna, fish soup, mullet, sushi and sashimi.
This fragrant and fresh red opens with red-skinned berry, violet and Mediterranean brush aromas. The easy-drinking palate offers raspberry, red cherry and clove alongside velvety tannins and bright acidity. Serve slightly chilled for a perfect summer red.
