Product Notes:
Brings Sicily right into your dining room, the delicious Nero d'Avola is clean and bright; touches of red and black fruit with an accent of sweet leather.

About Estate:
Sicilian Style Sicily, the warm island off the coast of Italy, has found its grape hero. Nero d'Avola has long been the indigenous grape variety of the area, but was originally relegated as a blending agent to add color and body to other wines of the region. In the past few decades, Nero d'Avola has come into its own, bringing Sicily well-deserved winemaking recognition. Notable Facts Also known as Calabrese, Nero d'Avola has become the most popular grape grown in Sicily, making wines from 100% of the variety rather than blended. Its wines are dark in color, big in fruit flavors, well-suited for oak and able to age for quite a few years, although most are good drinking upon release too.

Summing it up Successful Sites: Sicily

Common Descriptors: cherry, plum, raspberry, spice, smoke

Food Pairing:
Europe: Eggplant and tomato pasta (pasta alla norma); chicken salad with pomegranate, pinenuts and raisins (rosé) Asia: Caramelized barbecued pork patties (bun cha); flour noodles with meat sauce Americas: Argentinian parrilla-grilled, grass-fed steak; chili con carne Africa/Middle East: Lamb-stuffed courgettes (koosa bil ablama) (rosé)

About Varietal:
Nero d’Avola typically has high tannins, medium acid and a strong body. However, it can also be very smooth if grown at higher elevations where the air is cooler and alcohol levels are restricted. It thrives on the eastern part of Sicily and is being trialed in Australia and California. Because of its generous color, Nero d’Avola is sometimes produced as rosé wine.
