When it comes to Italian wines, few are as influential as Nero d’Avola, a red wine which is a firm favourite with wine lovers worldwide.
Described as the most important red grape in Sicily, Nero d’Avola has become synonymous with medium to full-bodied red wines that are consumed the world over. Often compared to New World Shiraz, the wines combine dark fruit characters together with spicy pepper and a distinct note of dried herbs. It has a characterful, fruity bouquet, not dissimilar to the fragrance of blackberries, and is as delightful on the nose as it is on the palette.
Named after the town of Avola, in southeastern Sicily, this ruby red grape has been grown here for hundreds of years but is now widely cultivated right across the island, as the popularity of this wine has led to increasing numbers of Italian wine lovers wanting to buy Nero d’Avola.
Nero d’Avola likes a warm, dry climate, so many Australian producers have had great success in growing and producing these wines. Regions such as Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley have all produced some great Neros. Due to its fuller body style, Nero is a wine to match with red meats and heavier rustic pasta, particularly classic country dishes such as linguine with rabbit ragu!
