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 Mediterranean coastline.

The Nero d’Avola vines for the Tané red wine grow in the small Orcher vineyard in Contrada Bidini in Valle dell’Acate located near Ragusa in Southeastern Sicily at an altitude of 100 m. In this vineyard the soil’s unique characteristics find their best expression in the Nero d’Avola grapes, However, the grape yield is low – only 800 grams of grape per plant – which ensures a very concentrated juice. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and destalked followed by fermentation on the skins. The wine matured 10-12 months in French oak barriques followed by bottle-ageing for 12-14 months.

Longevity 5-10 years.
