'The undisputed Godfather of Sicilian wines'

A bold, fruity flavour that goes down well with red meat (the gamier the better). Or lentils and mushrooms if you’re a veggie.

Description

The bold, fruity flavour of this wine is all thanks to the black grape of Avola (not the Black Grape of the 90s, they were from Manchester), brought to Sicily by the Greeks when wine was drunk from Amphorae, not boxes.

Meet The Producer
Cantina Sociale Sant’Antonio is a Sicilian wine cooperative, just outside Trapani, that only works with its members’ grapes. With virtually zero pesticide use, their agricultural practices are organic (although they’re not certified) and almost all their wine is boxed. You know you’re in the deep south when the nearest capital city is Tunis and the micro-climate here is perfect for growing grapes.

5 reviews for Nero d’Avola Sicilia DOC

    This is seriously good Nero D’Avola. A big explosion of damson like flavours on the palate, with a long finish. It wants some food with it, but this is a lovely wine. The real beauty of it is that I doubt you’d be able to find something of this character in the supermarket. It’s like drinking a wine on holiday and then being disappointed when your local supermarket version of the same grape doesn’t match up to what you remembered. When in Rome has opened the door to serving that holiday wine at home. Benissimo!

    Obviously buying a 5l wine box is a bit of a commitment never having tried this specific wine but I’ve enjoyed Nero D’Avola before so thought I should take a punt.

    A lovely great big gobby mouthful, gives your gums a great fruity workout followed by a dry finish. A wine definately more suited to food than without but a really good allrounder nevertheless.

    Colour: Deep red
    Smell: Umm; winy & fruity! I’m sure them’s in the know can think of the right words but for me just smelled good.
    Taste: @20.5c A big, fruity; sour black cherries and maybe with a bit of black pepper & cloves in there, mouthful with a tart, Damson dry finish. Definitely a dry wine (which is a relief!) and very good with food!

    Went away for the weekend and found this cheeky number came too. Great wine and even better for sharing….. Will be buying more.

    Seriously good wine. We tried our first box on Wednesday and as the week progressed the wine tasted better. The tap system is excellent and so convenient. It will definitely be on our xmas present list to family who can spread the word.

    Lovely smell. Great frutty and sour cherry taste. I have just baked a lasagna for dinner and I could not stop myself to open my brandnew Nero d’Avola box. Not sure if it was worth the lasagna with Nero d’Avola or viceversa.
    I look forward to taste Aglianico.
