Areas of cultivation It is spread mainly in eastern Sicily (Pachino and Noto) and in western (agrigento, marsalese and palermitano).
History Origin uncertain though its synonym Calabrese suggests a provenance from Calabria, in fact not certified as the vine has been cultivated in Sicily for many centuries. It is also known by the synonyms Calabrese d'Avola, Calabrese black, Calabrese pizzutello and Calabrese sweet. In other versions of the etymology of the word Calabrese, reference is made to an erroneous interpretation of the insular dialect of the term calaurisi, from the words calea, with the meaning of grapes, and aulisi, indicating the origin from Avola, in the province of Syracuse. Another interpretation is the use of the Calabrian term for purely commercial reasons since the wines from Calabria were well known and easily sold abroad, especially in France, up to the eighteenth, or up to the advent of Marsala. Since the late nineteenth century however, the Sicilian wines had already been made known, and in particular those vinified by Nero d'Avola in the present province of Syracuse, specifically from the territory of Pachino. These were very much in vogue and especially appreciated by the cousins ​​of the Alps. In the previous centuries, Black d'Avola was instead used exclusively for cutting. After a long gestation of pure wines, beginning in the seventies of the twentieth century, Nero d'Avola assumed today's character, with the production of excellent international wines.
