Nero d’Avola is a very important native varietal. Initially found in Siracusa, it is now found in all the wine-making areas on the island. It prefers clay-like terrain and is very sensitive to excessive dryness and too much exposure to sunlight. Farmed in the espallier method.
Deep ruby-red and violet flecks. Intense nose of pomegranate and wild strawberries. Soft and velvety, with smooth and sweet tannins.
