Valle dell’Acate’s red wines always stand out in a blind tasting for their explosive aromas of wildflowers and brushy herbs, so evocative of southern Sicily’s windswept Vittoria countryside. This wine is no exception, exuding scents of freshly cut grass, tobacco leaf and menthol that meld with flavors of juicy strawberry and raspberry. Savory tones emerge as the wine opens in the glass, complementing those herb-tinged red fruit flavors.
