NERO D'AVOLA is a high-quality indigenous grape variety of Sicilian origin, which is now widespread in southern Italy. Because of its excellent qualities, it is also called "Principe Siciliano" (Sicilian prince). The city of Avola lies between Syracuse and Noto. This variety is one of the traditional grape varieties of Sicily and is also known under the name "Calabrese", which may indicate the origin of the grape.
The NERO D'AVOLA is rarely offered as pure wine - but if, as in our case, it is usually deep dark and concentrated, without the necessary acidity is missing - but often in blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
