Nero d’ Avola

Nero d’ Avola
Taking its name from the town of Avola, in south east Sicily, Nero d’Avola is a very popular red grape and it is perhaps one of the most commonly planted grapes in Sicily, normally flowering early in the season and ripening by mid-September. While primarily being found in the south, Nero d'Avola has started to reach out across Sicily, thriving in hot and dry climates, though still able to grow in cooler and damper conditions, the grape is being grown in Australia, California, Malta, Turkey and South Africa and produces a wine that is cherry or ruby red in colour and has a dry, slightly acidic flavour.
