Nero D'avola

Nero d'Avola ("Black from Avola" in Italian) is "the most important red wine grape in Sicily" and is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola, near Syracusa in the southeast of Sicily and its wines are often compared to New World Shiraz, with sweet soft tannins and plum/ prune fruit and sometimes peppery flavours. It is often made as a varietal wine, but it is also be assembled with another local grape called Frappato or with international varieties.
