The Sicilian winery of Valle dell’Acate has a long and storied history amongst the top estates in Sicily, as the Jacono family can trace back their winemaking roots here to the nineteenth century. It is located in the southeastern corner of Sicily, on the elegant Bidini Manor in the hills of the Dirillo Valley. The estate comprises over one hundred hectares of land, both for grapevines as well as Sicily’s famous blood oranges. Under the direction of the current head of the family winery, the elegant Gaetana Jacono, many of the vineyards have been replanted to the great traditional grapes of Sicily which are farmed organically. 100% Grillo; Zagra in Sicilian dialect means white citrus blossom.
Complex with distinctive aromas of white flowers and minerals. Large, velvety but alive, with great structure and persistence with strong flavor and minerality.
