The Valle dell’Acate winery was founded by Giuseppe Jacono at the end of the 19th century and is today run by the latest generation of the Jacono family. Since the start, the familial vocation has been to establish a name for the family’s wines on an international level.
Valle dell’Acate winery has continued this tradition, specializing in the cultivation of the most prized and productive autochthonous vines, creating superior wines. The territory around Acate has a variety of landscapes. The countryside, at once sweet and arid, includes fertile flatlands that slope gently down towards the low, uniform coastline.

The wine was matured in stainless steel vats for 6 months and bottle-aged for at least 3 months before release.
