Valle dell'Acate Nero d'Avola 'Il Moro'Regular price $24.99
Valle dell’Acate is found in the south east corner of Sicily, located between the Iblei mountains and the Mediterranean sea in province of Ragusa. This corner of Sicily has always been a hotbed of vinous activity, but it was in the 1800s that Gaetano Jacono founded the cellars. At that time, a great part of the wine produced in the valley was destined for export to France to help beef up wines from the Rhone valley and beyond. And since the founding of the estate, six generations of this family of vignerons have toiled in the Dirillo valley.
In 2000, shortly after Gaetana Jacono got her degree in pharmacy, she abandoned her career to join the family winery with the aim of taking it to the next level. Her Nero d'Avola is a textbook example of this classic Sicilian variety. Aromas of cherry and raspberry with a spicy background. Full, warm and elegant, very persistent, with typical austere, but polite, tannins. Best paired with meat dishes, game meats, roasts and filets.
