Officially known as Calabrese in Italy with Nero d’Avola a modern evolution of Sicily’s most famous vinous export. An early flowering late ripening variety that tolerates heat without dropping acidity, makes for a perfect match in our dry region near the sea.

Nero may just represent a necessary genesis towards varieties more suited to our climate: a wine that was just meant to be.
