Nero d'Avola | Grape variety



Sicily is booming - thanks in part to its flagship wine, the Nero d'Avola: this indigenous red grape variety produces one of the most popular wines in Italy. The Sicilian red wine combines luscious berry fruit with a strong structure and excellent drinkability. For a long time, Nero d'Avola was in demand as a blended wine for international cuvees, but only recently have Italian winegrowers begun to show respect for this original grape variety and produce it as a single varietal. Quality-conscious wine producers on the island value the grape for its fullness and longevity; it is also well suited for barrel ageing. - Gerardo [TS03/24]

"The Nero d'Avola has had a remarkable career in the last 20 years or so, which can be associated primarily with the rapid rise of the wines of Sicily. It is named after the small town of Avola in the province of Siracus, from where the variety probably originated. It was first mentioned in 1696, but in the 18th and 19th centuries it was still called Calavrisi, as it was believed to have originated in Calabria. The origin of this name is now believed to be Calausi, which means Caia Avola, which brings us back to the town of Avola." - Falstaff

This single-varietal Nero d'Avola is the classic from the house of Cusumano: in the glass of dark ruby color with a black core.

"A fine-tannined and pretty-fruited nero d'avola with black-cherry and blueberry character and some citrus. Medium-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. In check, but open. Drink now." - James Suckling

"Umami notes of soy sauce and black olives, a bit of mossy underbrush and berries swirl together on the nose of the Cusumano estate Nero d'Avola. The palate pops with the snap of cherry and sour plum skin, the astringency of bark and top soil, angular tannins and lively acid." - Wine Enthusiast

´Benuara´ · Syrah-Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2021, Cusumano, Sizilien
Benuara · Syrah-Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2021

"The Nero d'Avola and its partial maturation in stainless steel tanks give the Benuara its freshness. It gets its strength from the Syrah, which has been matured in large wooden barrels. In the fragrance, fruit aromas of dark berries and sea buckthorn characterize this wine. The intense fruit and the well-integrated tannin impress on the tongue. Very soft and yet rich. Goes well with dishes with red meat, cheese." - John Platter

"Very dark, intense red with purple highlights. On the nose aromas of plum and blueberry, accompanied by notes of licorice and cocoa. In the mouth soft but with a nice note of acidity, marked tannins and a slightly spicy finish." - Falstaff

"A juicy berry nose on this wine offers fun, funky aromas of hot rocks and soy sauce to balance. The palate brings more cherries, strawberries and blackberries, but with a tannic-acidic punch that ensures the fruit maintains integrity." - Wine Enthusiast
