sicily land of... Nero d'Avola

Nero d'Avola (Pronounced "Neh-roe Dah-voe-lah" and translated "The black (grape) of Avola) is Sicily's most popular red grape  is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. It is named after Avola in the far south of Sicily and its wines are compared to Syrah, with sweet tannins and plum or peppery flavours. As recently as the 1980s plantings of Nero d'Avola declined in Sicily as many growers switched to international grape varieties thought more suitable for commerce.New viticulture techniques and night harvesting placing the grapes in cooled vats to  prevent conditions which can lead to premature fermentation have been used by a few vintners to retain flavor without producing an overpowering wine.
