History The Nero d’Avola, also known as Calabrese, is one of the best vines in Sicily. Its origin is not well known, the name is probably due to a Calabrian origin, but is coming from a wrong translation of Sicilain dialect word «calaurisi», fusion of the word «calea» (vine) and «aulisi» (Avola, a village close to Siracusa). It was also know to the French in Burgundy and in Gironde as «vin medicine» , for the high alcohol and intense scent. As from 1911, the Nero d’Avola vine has been tested in many areas in Italy. While refining its cultivation methods it was possible to reduce its sugar content and to increase its acidity. Nowadays, wines made of 100% of this vine are considered as some of the best Italian Reds, with great structure and intense and powerful character.
