"Nero d'Avola" is the most important red wine grape in Sicily and is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola in the far south of Sicily. It is frequently compared with New World Shiraz wines due to its sweet tannins and plum or peppery flavours. Intense and smooth red wine, full of ripe red berry aromas and flavours supported by soft tannins. An ideal accompaniment to any tomato based pasta dishes or red meat. Or, perhaps try with Parmigiana aubergines. Vegan
