Unlike many others Nero d’ Avola is full-bodied but smooth, rounded, warm, and delightfully acid – just at the right point. It is fruity, strongly reminiscent of ripe red berry fruit, black cherry, black plum, violet, liquorice, tobacco and (Chile) pepper flavours. Dry With smooth tannins, quite strong, but not sharp at all, in good balance with the alcohol. It can age until 4-5 years.

Description

Nero d'Avola is the most important red wine grape in Sicily and is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola in the south-east of Sicily; the vine likes hot and arid climates. A well-made Nero has good dark concentration. Because of its wild character some colleagues blend their Nero d’Avola with Frappato, Nerello Mascalese, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, to obtain less acidity, more elegance, more  oral fragrance and softer fruit. This young NE however is Nero d’Avola in purity.
