The Avola IGT denomination represents one of the most important wine-growing areas of the Sicily region. The Avola IGT appellation includes the provinces of Syracuse and was created in 2011. The production area falls within the Region of Sicily and includes, in the province of Syracuse, the entire administrative territory of the municipalities of Avola and Syracuse. The orography and climate of the production area, the favorable exposure of the vineyards, the texture and the chemical-physical structure of the land interact in a decisive way with the cultivation of the vine, contributing to obtaining the particular physical-chemical characteristics and organoleptic characteristics of the wines of the “Avola” IGT. Nero d'Avola is certainly the most famous Sicilian red grape variety, and one of the most widespread in the whole island. Nero d'Avola is a vigorous vine, appreciated for its resistance to drought and hot summers, Nero d'Avola is extremely adaptable to different types of soils, and is greatly affected by the influence of the different terrors in which it is grown. The range of Sicilian Nero d'Avola can range from impressive wines, with great alcohol content and very dense tannins, to more slender and elegant wines, characterized by a medium-structured body and greater acidity.
