Valle dell’Acate is one of the most well-known and active vineyards in southeastern Sicily.
The year 2018 marks, contemporaneously, an arrival point and a point of decisive change and it is possible to say that the dreams which have been pursued with tenacity for twenty years have taken on concrete form. Dreams which could be synthesized as the triumph of Cerasuolo di Vittoria. Together with Carlo Casavecchia, the winemaker from Piedmont capable of making the notes of this native Sicilian grape variety resound. Finally, after five years of aging in the cellars, we have presented the first vintage of Iri in In, the Cerasuolo di Vittoria Cru DOCG, the expression of one sole vineyard, a wine from the Bidini Soprano high plateau. A bottle which confirms our convictions, mine and from the hands of Casavecchia, an offering which demonstrates that Cerasuolo ca give a wine of lengthy aging. And, what is more: all of the 200 acres (80 hectares) of vineyards, property of the Jacono family for six generations, are definitively certified as biological. Characterized by seven soil types of a different nature and structure, they extend all around the “palmento alla dispensa”, the Jacono’s cement fermentation structure, architect tonic testimony of my family, one with expert knowledge and promotional talent for Frappato and for Cerasuolo di Vittoria.
