Nero d’Avola IGT
This full-bodied, intense, jammy southern Italian stallion is Sicily’s most famous grape, no bragging. It’s hot down there so we’re talking ripe plums with a kick of pepper. Pair it with beef jerky, smoked meat, or a pizza party with your pals.
This beautiful island is home to some of Italy’s most interesting and unusual wines. The winemaking tradition goes back 4000 years and the knowledge has been passed down through the generations. The vineyards are planted up in the rocky hillsides and around the Mediterranean coast, where the climate is ideal for grapes. Sicily has a number of grape varieties which are unique to the island, such as Grecanico, Inzolia and Nero d’Avola.
