Nero d‘Avola

Nero d‘Avola is Sicily‘s most widely planted red grape variety. According to Alberto Antonini, it has many similarities with Syrah. Like Syrah, it greatly benefits from low vigour soil, a warm climate and low vine training. The best examples are deep coloured and full bodied with a damson and chocolate character, high levels of tannins and decent acidity. While Nero d‘Avola‘s home is thought to be in Sicily, one of its synonyms, Calabrese, suggests that it might have been brough to Sicily from Calabria. However, there is a small town near Pachino in southeastern Sicily called Avola, so some connection between the two must be assumed. Pachino was once as famous for its deep coloured blending wine as it is today for the quality of its tomatoes. Nero d‘Avola‘s transition from a blender sought after for its colour, to a variety that is making some of Sicily‘s best reds has been quick, so the variety would seem to promise more than it has yet delivered.
