Casa Nostra Nero dAvola IGT Organica

The "Casa Nostra" (our house) is a blend of Nero D'Avola with the better known Syrah grape, 

Aromas of baked plums, raspberry chocolates, green olives and baked earth. Smooth in the mouth, and flavourful but with soft tannins and at a relatively low alcohol level of 12.5% makes it an easy choice for mid-week sipping. 

"Nero D'Avola" simply translates as 'Black of Avola' - Avola being a seaside town in South Eastern Sicily where the grape possibly originates.  Other accounts suggest the region Calabria as home (the toe of the boot). 

Regardless of the origins, Nero D'Avola  is the most widely grown and most important grape on Sicily, a hotbed of trade and population movement during the Middle Ages. In fact it was widely used to add colour and body to lesser wines in mainland Italy. Wines from the grape can range from juicy plum and berry flavours to dark raspberry and chocolate flavours.
