2009 Valle dell'Acate "Il Frappato" (WAS $19.99)

SKU #1063147

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Cool, floral aromas of red cherry, strawberry and menthol show an almost pungent quality. Smooth and fairly intensely flavored, with delicious red berry and herbal flavors given shape by bright acidity. Shows an almost pinot noir-like verve on the fresh, long, fine-grained finish. In recent years, this has been far and away the estate's best wine, and it's no different this year."

Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
