Rated 91 points Wine Advocate
A terrific value proposition, the organic Valle dell'Acate 2022 Sicilia Vittoria Il Frappato shows a light appearance with shiny ruby colors. This wine is fragrant and punchy with lots of vibrant cherry fruit, wild berry and sour cassis. Hints of caper or green olive also appear. You get energy and tension in this easy-drinking red. Valle dell'Acate makes a really fun bottle of Frappato that hits all the right marks.

Rated 90 points James Suckling
A rather floral and fruit-forward nose with rose, raspberry and strawberry coming through. Medium-bodied with silky tannins. Linear, fruity and fun.

Rated 90 points Vinous
The 2021 Frappato is a deeply expressive yet still lively expression, with hints of tangerine giving way to sour cherries and a mix of rose and violet florals. It’s softly textured yet full of citrus-derived tension and perfumed throughout, like liquid flowers offset by a spicy wave of blood orange. This finishes with length yet also remarkably fresh, and it leaves the mouth watering for more. I would be happy to drink this any day of the week. (EG)
