An island rich in history, scenery, and cuisine, Sicily needs no introduction to most, although its wines may not be among the more prominent Italian wines. Even for what is a relatively large isle, there is a surprisingly large selection of Sicilian wines, with the Nero d’Avola being the signature grape variety in Sicily’s best wines.
