Nero d'Avola

The dark from Avola is a Casanova. A heartbreaker from the south of the country, as it is written in the book. No, he is not a fashionable wine, because he brings everything that his mamma has given him on the way. A good complexion, good genes, good manners and temperament. Would you like to get to know it?

Nero d'Avola

The dark one from Avola is a Casanova. A heartbreaker from the south of the country, as it is written in the book. No, it is not a fashionable wine, because it has everything that its mother gave it. A good complexion, good genes, good manners and temperament. Would you like to get to know it?

 

Rich, dark color, plump fruit, velvety feeling on the palate. Powerful and tannic, spirited - a typical southern Italian just. One with charm and a pleasantly fresh acidity that ensures it doesn't overweight. A pretty, decent and pleasing companion. Since the 1990s, the genuine Sicilian has advanced to become everybody's darling and, as a varietal wine, enjoys the attention it deserves. Today it is spoken of as a hero, its success story as a best-seller is consistent. Actually amazing, because in Sicily it has been around for an eternity. Nero d'Avola is one of the most cultivated varieties on the island, where conditions are perfect for it: Sun, sun, sun and the right slopes.

 

 

When the vines are well cared for in this climate, they produce richly colored, high-alcohol wines with lots of personality. Confusingly, the red grape variety is also called Calabrese or Calabrese d'Avola, but it is hardly ever found in Calabria. Its predecessors were indigenous to Greece in the distant past. As so often, however, not all the ancestral lines are conclusive. The main thing is: Nero d'Avola belongs to noble grape varieties. And its wine, meanwhile, stands flatteringly in the spotlight, making one memorable appearance after another on the international stage. The days when Nero d'Avola was abused as a common dye grape and for cheap blended wines are numbered. A little song to finish? Raise the curtain, Nero d'Avola, sound off: Bello e impossibile.
