Originally grown on the island of Sicily, this Nero d’Avola (or Nero for short) was grown locally on the rocky Vina Plains just north of Chico. Our Nero is a deep, dry, and powerful wine that needs a few minutes to decant and fully unravel its many layers. When you first smell, you may notice an aroma of fresh cut green grass and smoke that gives way to rich notes of tobacco, caramel, and black cherry. Great with any heavy cream dish, this wine will continue to age and evolve for years. Nero d’Avola (the Black Grape of Avola) is indigenous to Sicily and hails from Avola on the southern tip of the island. It is often called the “most important red wine grape in Sicily”. If you like full-bodies dry reds like Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, then you are going to love Nero d’Avola.
