BelliFolli is a new line of fresh and light wines by Valle dell’Acate. BelliFolli synthesizes the character and the contrasts of Sicily and the Sicilians: the beauty and the moments of folly, the light and the shade, the sea in turmoil and the warm Sirocco (Scirocco) breeze – all of this which, together, has created an identity which can be seen in one of the marvels of the island, its spectacular Baroque architecture. "As a child I walked through the streets of our cities protected by the gargoyles, the fantastic or grotesque faces which jut out from the facades of the palaces. We Sicilians have lived with them for centuries; they are part of our daily life." - Gaetana Jacono, proprietor of Valle dell’Acate

Aging: 4 months in steel vat, 3 months in bottle

Tasting Notes: The vigorous, almost beastly, face on the label recounts the story of Nero d’Avola, which is one full of intense flavors. The nose shows red fruit and spices including licorice. The palate is velvety and balanced with pleasurable notes of red fruit; it is harmonious with particularly inviting tannin.s This red wine pairs nicely with most dishes.
