nero d'Avola

 

Also known as calabrese (but not broccoli), it is one of the best known varieties of Sicily where it is known for producing high quality wines of richness, texture and longevity. It adds body and extract to blends, and as a single varietal it takes well to barrel maturation for serious long-lived wines. As recently as the 1980s, plantings of nero d'Avola declined in Sicily as many growers switched to international grape varieties thought more suitable for commerce. But now nero d'Avola is coming back as the native grape earns a growing reputation in its own right.
