Sicilian wine

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It's characterised by its micro-climates and volcanic soil, so when it comes to wine it’s almost like a small country in its own right. Although the region was once known for churning out ordinary bulk wines, today wine from Sicily is renowned as some of the most unique and exciting in Italy.

Nero D’Avola is the most famous red wine of Sicily. It has a fruit-forward and bold flavour, with notes of ripe blackberries, black plums, sweet cherries, leather, tobacco and chocolate.

Nero d'Avola grapes are grown all over Sicily. Often used in simple table wine blends, they can also be found in high quality DOC and DOCG wines. To produce grapes for premium wines, winemakers often conduct a "green harvest" – cutting roughly half the bunches off before they're fully ripe. This forces the vines to focus all their nutrients on the remaining grapes, resulting in more concentrated flavours.
