AUGUST 2018 WINES OF THE MONTH

The Valle dell'Acate estate, located in the southeast corner of Sicily, resides in the historic Bidini domain which is nestled in the hills of Valle del Dirillo. The Jacono family established the cantina in the late 19th century, and since then it has been one of Sicily's top estates. In their vineyards, Valle dell'Acate practices organic and sustainable farming to produce the best grapes possible. They have a long, storied history of crafting some of the most complex and food-friendly wines to be found on the island. The winery's second label, Tenuta Ibidini, is made from estate vineyards planted with indigenous varietals, like Insolia and Nero d'Avola.

The unbelievable quality and character of these wines, coupled with the continued leadership of the Jacono family, make them one of the great values all around.

Tenuta Ibidini Insolia 2016
The  2016  Tenuta  Ibidini  Bianco,  a  wine  made  from  100%  Insolia,  pours  a  light lemon in the glass with gold highlights. On the nose, aromas of thyme flowers, Mediterranean herbs and fresh yellow peach waft from the glass. On the palate, the wine is light-bodied with a broad mouthfeel and zippy acidity which finishes with a clean, stony minerality. Pair this wine with grilled zucchini, summer squash and peaches brushed with olive oil, pepper and herbs, topped with fresh ricotta. — $7.99

Tenuta Ibidini Nero d'Avola 2016
The  2016 Ibidini Rosso is made from 100% Nero d'Avola and pours a vibrant ruby in the glass. On the nose aromas of small red fruits mix with anise and a subtle earthiness. On the palate, this medium-bodied Sicilian treat delivers layer upon layer of juicy, fresh fruit flavor with a delightful savory spice undertone. Enjoy with anything off the grill from hamburgers to sausages to steaks or even swordfish and tuna! — $7.99
