    • "Sallier de la Tour" Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2017

      “Sallier de la Tour” Nero d’Avola Sicilia DOC 2017

      Exceptional red wine! Deep dark red, in the nose spices and a fine liquorice note. Impressive fruit and freshness on the palate, the subtle use of wood gives it concentration, backbone, velvety elegance and a good future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "I love the spicy complexity to this nero d’avola, which is far from all about its boisterous cherries. Think tamarind, dried cumin and rosemary. Juicy and succulent on the full-bodied palate, where the tannins take on a soft, fleshy appeal, drawing in layers of exuberant blackberries and deeper accents of tar." James Suckling

      “Rosé di Neré" Nero d’Avola Terre Siciliane IGT 2019

      The Nero d'Avola grapes come from vines up to 30 years old in the Noto region. Animating delicate fruity notes of pineapple and raspberry. Round, full and wonderfully drinkable on the palate, with beautiful fruit, spice and a cool, fresh final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright gold with pinkish tinge. Spontaneous fermentation notes, dicey yeast, quite corpulent in the mouth, strong acidity, a rather fine palate fruit, the finish is substantial with a slight brittleness or astringency, a very unusual rosé." Falstaff

      "The 2019 Feudo Maccari Rose di Nero d’Avola lifts from the glass with an intense and spicy display, showing dried peaches and mango with exotic floral perfumes, white smoke, and hints of ginger. On the palate, silky textures usher in ripe fruit, leaning more toward the tropical spectrum, with contrasting green citrus and minerals. The finish is long, seaming to coat the senses in liquid florals while tapering off with a mouthwatering tug of residual acids." Vinous

    Things to know aboutNero d'Avola 

    The black one from Avola. Avola is a small town near the famous excavations of Syracuse, in the southeast of Sicily. Nero simply means black. Nero d'Avola is a very old autochthonous grape variety. First mentions as "Calaurisi", which refer to the same small town in the Sicilian dialect, already existed in the 17th century. Nevertheless, little is known about this demanding grape variety to this day. For decades it served mainly as a blending partner to enhance other Italian and also French red wines, to make them darker and more full-bodied. Only when autochthonous grape varieties became modern again, Nero d'Avola was filled again under his name - and blended with international varieties, which had previously been planted in large quantities in Sicily. The result was a wine that could be found in almost every supermarket for little money. But in rather sad mass-produced quality.

    Only a few years ago, oenologists at the top Sicilian wineries recognized the potential that was slumbering there and began to make the black wine from Avola what it could have always been. To the showcase red wine of the island. Since then, there is hardly a well-known Sicilian winery that does not have an excellent Nero d'Avola in its assortment. The international success is downright uncanny, the awards in all guides and magazines prove it. And - with the Nero d'Avola, the renaissance of autochthonous grape varieties began.

    To this day, no ancestry has been proven. The grape variety probably comes from Sicily, possibly also from Calabria, because some of the old synonyms have "Calabrese" as a component. However, there is also the opinion that this Calabrese is the Italian interpretation of the Sicilian dialect word "Calaurisi", which in turn means "the grape coming from Avola".

    Nero d'Avola matures relatively late, but is extremely resistant to heat and drought. He loves the warmth. Therefore, it is usually kept low to have the grapes hanging close to the ground. Many vineyards are even planted in the old Albarello-Reberziehung (also Gobelet- or single stock-education), which can be cultivated only laboriously. Nero d'Avola produces deep dark, tannin-rich and full-bodied red wines, which nevertheless do not lack natural acidity and therefore always present themselves quite fresh, which one would hardly expect with such a dark wine from Sicily. The scent is balsamic and spicy, dark berry, often with a touch of cedar or leather. Juicy on the palate with hints of plums, elderberries and blackberries. High-quality Nero d'Avola also have several years of maturing potential. In short: an autochthonous Sicilian for lovers of powerful red wines.

    With over 20,000 hectares of vineyards, Nero d'Avola is widespread in Sicily and is approved in several DOC and DOCG wines. With the renaissance of the variety, it was also cultivated more often in Calabria. Tendency rising. SUPERIORE.DE
